Background & policy context: 

The project studied an innovative model in two parts. The first regards the intent of the National Railways to potentiate its role of providing a service for local public transportation. The second regards the exploitation of the "junctions" in the system, which make up the railway stations. 

The project operated as following:

  • Sustaining the development of a strategy to improve the urban environment
  • Political proposition for a renewed territorial structure.
Objectives: 

The objectives can be summarized as the following:

  • An overall reduction in public mobilization by allocating residential dwellings, public services, shopping centers, etc. in along the junctions in disuse
  • A reduction in air and noise pollution
  • A regeneration of urban terrain into future railway stations
