Abstract
The main objective of this study is to illustrate the consequences of not converting Lundalänken
into a tramline, which means replacing the former bus line. The interest behind the study derives
from the public opposition that this ongoing project has faced. The opponents are claiming that there
are more suitable alternatives than a tramline to solve the capacity issue that Lund is expecting in
the future. The expected addition of 40-50 000 people living, working and commuting is generated
from the planned expansion of the area Brunnshög. By distributing the Brunnshög travelers on
differently combined traffic systems, with tramline not included in any of the systems, the
arrangements required equal the consequences the absence of... (More)
The main objective of this study is to illustrate the consequences of not converting Lundalänken

from the planned expansion of the area Brunnshög. By distributing the Brunnshög travelers on
differently combined traffic systems, with tramline not included in any of the systems, the
arrangements required equal the consequences the absence of the tramline entails. Through literature
studies and scenario planning, in which scenarios with experimental traffic systems are being
created, results show that it is possible to implement an extension in Brunnshög without a tramline,
on the obvious condition that other solutions are being adopted side by side. However, a fully
developed Brunnshög is not recommended because it increases the risk of a higher market share for
cars when the double articulated buses are reaching its maximum capacity. With (single) articulated
buses, only 39 % of Brunnshög is proposed to be exploited. Through the study it has become clear
that implementing capacity increase demands a review on the means of conveyances’ effects on
each other. Only then it is possible to replace the tramline on Lundalänken with other alternatives
and secure and maintain a well-functioning traffic flow within the whole system. (Less)
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Den exploateringsdrivna trafikökningen i Brunnshög kräver omedelbara åtgärder. På
Lundalänken anläggs i dagsläget en spårväg vilket kommer generera en stor kapacitetshöjning.
Sedan satsningen på spårvägen fastställdes har beslutet ifrågasatts, och än idag trots att
byggandet har påbörjats. Den fortsatta uppståndelsen speglar graden av missnöje vilket lett till
intresset att utreda vad alternativen till spårvägen skulle innebära för kompromisser och andra
åtgärder som i sin tur inverkar på utvecklingen i Brunnshög.
