AMOSAR: Accessibility and sustainable mobility in rural areas

DSC_1185.jpg

AMOSAR, Accessibility and Sustainable Mobility in Rural Areas, is a project developed by Fundación RIA with the aim of providing the citizens of the north coast of the Arousa estuary with efficient, sustainable and digital mobility for their daily movements, improving the connection between the different towns in the region and between them and Santiago de Compostela.


The population centers of Barbanza Arousa are articulated along the north coast of the Arousa estuary and have an economy mainly dependent on the fishing sector. This relationship with the sea has a great influence on local structures, both social and urban. The main economic activities are carried out in the ports and industrial estates, where leading national companies in the canning sector are located, employing an important part of the local population and therefore generating thousands of daily movements of people and goods.


Situation of the industrial estates with respect to the ports of Barbanza Arousa


This territorial structuring strategy for the industrial axis of the Barbanza peninsula is based on a networked, low-emission public transport system with coordinated transfers, shorter travel times and real-time route information.


Design of a new public mobility system


The system is conceived as the first step in a transformative process that promotes actions to improve public space and the rehabilitation of the housing stock.


Implementation of intermodality sites in population centers.
