Gottlieb Paludan Architects to design three traffic control centres in Sweden


Gottlieb Paludan Architects has been appointed to design three combined traffic control centres for Trafikverket (the Swedish Transport Administration), in collaboration with AFRY and BBH Arkitekter. The project includes new build, renovation and extension - and the overall purpose is to adapt the traffic control centres in Gävle, Gothenburg and Malmö to Sweden's upcoming new train control system and to consolidate control of road and rail traffic in the same facilities.

Gottlieb Paludan Architects is sub-consultant to AFRY and responsible for architecture and landscape design on all three traffic centres. On the project in Gävle, we will be collaborating with BBH Architects from Stockholm.

We will renovate the centre in Gothenburg, renovate and extend the centre in Gävle, while a new centre will be built in Malmö. The project are set to improve the physical security of the buildings, raise the standard of the working environment and contribute to greater flexibility in operations.

- We look forward to contributing with our experience and expertise in the design of traffic control centres and control rooms in Sweden. We have worked on several similar projects in Denmark with good results, satisfied customers and a reduced climate footprint. Now, we continue the journey and contribute to more sustainable transport in Sweden, says Mette Lyng Hansen, CEO at Gottlieb Paludan Architects.
