“Rail Baltica Urban Impacts” project is advocating for the establishment of an integrated planning process balancing inter-regional- and metropolitan-scale benefits this connection creates with city-scale, long-term benefits for the urban environments and local communities.

Oskars Redbergs is going to discuss of why Successful Cities are making sure that a transport investment such as an interchange is implemented jointly with an integrated development plan or an urban regeneration or redevelopment plan, and why it is more likely to induce economic and social impacts.

Architect Oskars Redbergs argues that the Rail Baltica project is, to a large extent, an urban transformation project that will have an enormous effect on the environmental, spatial and social structures of cities and their metropolitan areas.
