The residents of Tranås can now enjoy the Svartån as it leisurely winds its way through the town centre from two new jetties, one beside the town hall and one on the town square.
The jetties are part of the municipality’s comprehensive urban development initiative, Stadsvision 2010-2040, focusing on Tranås’ future structure and design from a 30-year perspective. The overall theme is “Putting People First”, and Pontarius is a proud contributor to realising this urban vision.
Although work is not yet one hundred percent complete among other things, meadows are to be planted around the jetties, they are already becoming a part of everyday life for the people of Tranås. With their proximity to both the water and the town centre, the Parks Department is planning to arrange, among other things, concerts on the jetties.
“It almost feels like Copenhagen,” said one Tranås resident, enjoying lunch with a friend in the sunshine on one of the newly opened jetties.
Pontarius has acted as managing consultant throughout the process; designing, project planning and managing the construction.
