The pedestrian street in central Uppsala is to be raised - a centimeter falls every year


The pedestrian street in central Uppsala is built on clay and falls annually by about a centimeter. Therefore, the street must be widened - so that people with wheelchairs or strollers will be able to access themselves properly.

It is the level differences that must be leveled out so that, for example, entrances to the shops along the street become accessible to everyone.

In some places there may be a level difference of about 30 centimeters, and this is how it will go:

- We will lift the ground cover that is there now, we change ground heat and we raise the pedestrian street. When we raise the pedestrian street we use a light filling material because we put on a weight again and then the pedestrian street drops. But when we put on lighter material, we cancel the process, says Helena Brämerson Gaddefors, project manager at Uppsala Municipality.

Costs about 30 million

Work will begin at the end of the month, and it is the street that runs from Bangårdsgatan towards Stora torget that will be raised.

The project is a collaboration between Uppsala municipality, Uppsala city cooperation and several property owners. It is estimated that the cost of the project will cost about 30 million.
