Abstract
As the world gets more urbanised, numerous areas have been forced to develop rapidly into something larger, to provide cheaper living options, and faster mode of transportation. Despite the more convenient life’s mobility it leads to, many urban transformations can also create social drawback and hinder the real life interaction among its inhabitants, as a result of the unaccommodating built environment for seeing and meeting people in the urban settings.

As the world gets more urbanised, numerous areas have been forced to develop rapidly into something larger, to provide cheaper living options, and faster mode of transportation. Despite the more convenient life’s mobility it leads to, many urban transformations can also create social drawback and hinder the real life interaction among its inhabitants, as a result of the unaccommodating built environment for seeing and meeting people in the urban settings. Landskrona, as the study area, is a city where the urban transformation has led to advancement and hindrance at once. This city has multifold benefits of geographical location, numerous innovative industries and vibrant categories of inhabitants. However, since the development of new train station in 2001, the city has facing a shift in the city accessibility that leads to a higher dependency on motorised transportation to reach the city centre by reason of vast distance. Thus, the urban life gets weaken and it raised the urgent need of a development to strengthening the active transportation option as to boost the presence of people in the urban vicinity, to encourage possible social interactions and to be raise the physical activity for a healthier and more pleasant life in the community. For urban life should not just bearable, but significantly worth living. (Less)
