Sustainability and green
The reconstruction of Slussen is hugely significant for the entire Mälardalen region. It will be possible to drain double the amount of water from Lake Mälaren, which will reduce the current, major risk of flooding. This will safeguard both important infrastructure and drinking water for two million people.
The new Slussen will be a hub, adapted to cater to the needs of the Stockholmers of today and tomorrow. There will be more room for public transport, pedestrians and cyclists. The surface area for motor traffic will diminish and be adjusted to allow for current traffic flows.
It is envisaged that Slussen will become an attractive meeting place comprising parks, entertainment and culture, restaurants and cafés.
