Traffic planning as part of land use planning in Espoo

Traffic planning sets the framework for traffic for the next 20 to 40 years. We at the Traffic Planning unit work together with the Master Planning unit and also participate in regional transport system planning. We are also in charge of planning cycling routes, public transport and the vehicle traffic target network (in Finnish).

Traffic planning as part of local detailed plans

  • In areas where new local detailed plans are drawn up or existing plans are amended, traffic planning is also necessary. A traffic planning officer will determine the space needed for traffic, the effects of planning on the traffic in the area and the environmental impact of transport. Traffic planning most importantly focuses on the pending local detailed plans included in the city’s annually published planning review.
