To improve pedestrian safety and passenger experience in Jönköping municipality, the bus terminals at Råslätts Centrum and Viktoriaplan have been redesigned. By creating better lighting, installing new bus shelters and outdoor seating, and planting more vegetation in the area, a safe environment has been created for residents and visitors alike.
Outdoor shelters for passengers and bicycle sheds for cyclists were developed for the project by adapting Nola's Terrace pergola system especially for the site. Both structures were constructed with sedum plants and transparent polycarbonate in the roofs. The walls were constructed from oiled oak and polycarbonate panels. Nola's Paxa Light concrete benches provide comfortable seating inside and outside the bus shelters.
