By the development of future city will include efficient transportation and efficient energy solutions will be important elements in planning. One challenge will be to prepare for an infrastructure that we currently do not know how it will look. Which transport solutions we will have in 2090? Which energy solutions we have in 2090? What must we take into account?
Through planning of a new district in Bod we have the ability to acquire knowledge about uncertainty urban planning in a long term perspective using international environments. In such work, we need contact with environments that are good on provident planning, future-oriented technology development, climate change, transport development, geopolitics, etc.
The four major transport modalities in Norway (aviation, road, rail and sea transport) meet in Bod. Bod Airport is one of six national airports and Bodo harbor is one of seven designated national ports. Bodo is only place in Norway where national port national airport, railway and road meet within walking distance. When developing new district and a new airport will these four transport carriers could be integrated within the same industry area. This opens unique opportunities for both freight and passenger transport, both in a national perspective but also in the arctic and global perspective.
A development of Bodo intermodal hub will also in a long term be associated with uncertainty in relation to developments in Northern Norway and the Arctic. Climate change and geopolitical challenges will provide guidance for the development of the Arctic and thus governs the possibilities inherent in the development of Bodo logistics hub in the Arctic.
