CODE PATRAS, Rail & City, A synopsis of the project and final recommendations
- Other Publication
After the completion of “CODE Patras” project and the ongoing discussion in the city of Patras about the railway and city development, it has been considered indispensable to proceed with an overview and assessment of the whole process to pinpoint considerable issues about the future decision-making on railway integration towards sustainable spatial and city development. The current synopsis attempts to present briefly and comprehensively the whole process of the railway upgrade in the city, including the official plans and intentions, the contribution of Code Patras project and especially of the Test Planning Process. The respective results of the last two initiatives will outline some final recommendations and critical questions. In particular, the aim is to illustrate a holistic overview of the discussed possible scenarios – the bypass, the tunnel and the ground-level solution – about the integration of the railway line on city level, the costs, the benefits and the time framework and reconsider some significant preconditions and facts for the final solution in Patras. The documentation is structured as follows. The introduction refers to the current and provisioned conditions of railway development and funding between Athens-Patras as well as the role and importance of the city of Patras in the decision-making process, the current problem and the initiative of “CODE Patras” project. The next section focuses on those three discussed scenarios clarifying the alignment and providing a rough cost estimation, the benefits and the risks. The third section introduces the solution of “CODE Patras” project compared with the other solutions assessed on city level and in three different sections, which also indicate a step-wise development. Ultimately, the final recommendations delineate considerable synergies between spatial planning, time and decision-making. Show more
