Linbana – ett nytt sätt att åka kollektivt

SDN Göteborgs stad.

Göteborgs Stad har genom trafikkontoret sedan 2013 utrett frågan om linbanor som en del av det kollektiva resandet i Göteborg. Skulle linbana börja ses som en del av kollektivtrafiken är detta det första nya tekniska delsystemet i svensk kollektivtrafik på nästan 100 år. Idén med en linbana i Göteborg kommer från den diskussion som fördes med göteborgarna inför stadens 400-årsjubileum. Flera personer ville då se en linbana över älven. På bara några få år har linbanan gått från att vara en kul idé till en bra idé, där vi idag på fullt allvar arbetar med möjligheten att ha en linbana på plats år 2021.

Vad händer just nu?

Utställning Arkitekttävling

Under november pågår en utställning, för att visa de fyra finalförslagen i den Arkitekttävling som pågår kring utformningen av linbanans stationer och torn.

Händer hösten 2017

Göteborgs Stad och Västtrafik arbetar med en genomförandestudie under 2017 och 2018, vilken ska ligga till grund för Kommunfullmäktiges slutgiltiga investeringsbeslut (2019). Det pågår flera upphandlingar under 2017 (teknisk leverantör samt arkitektur). Västtrafik utreder hur stationerna ska utformas och hur linbanegondolen bäst ska designas.
Göteborgs Stad arbetar även intensivt med planeringen av stationernas och linbanetornens placering, vilken innefattas i fyra detaljplaner.

Status och handlingar

  1. Förstudie

  2. Åtgärdsvalstudie

    En åtgärdsvalsstudie beskriver val av åtgärder för att lösa ett specifikt problem eller behov. Åtgärdsvalsstudien svarar framförallt på frågorna vad, varför och var.
  3. Genomförandestudie

    • Under 2017 och 2018 pågår arbetet med en genomförandestudie.

    I genomförandestudien göra analys av hur, när och av vem projektet ska genomföras.
  4. Byggnation

    • Möjlig byggstart är senare delen av 2019 alternativt under 2020.

    • Building a cable car system across the river was one of the many suggestions that emerged when the City Authority asked the people of Gothenburg for ideas about how we should mark the City's 400th Anniversary in 2021.

      We have continued to work on the idea. What do you think of this?

      Things have moved very quickly indeed. From being a 'fun idea' in 2012, where the emphasis was on it being a tourist attraction, it has developed three years later into a concrete proposal for a new form of public transport. In autumn 2014, the Traffic and Public Transport Authority conducted a preliminary study dealing with a cable car system in Gothenburg.

      The preliminary study reinforces the notion that a cable car system could very well work as a supplementary form of public transport or as a complement to a pedestrian and cycling infrastructure across the river in Gothenburg. A cable car system, with its extremely high frequency and reliability, would be a way of offering passengers a comfortable means of travel with very little energy consumption and relatively low operating costs.

      What is a cable car system?

      Many people associate cable cars with ski resorts. There are, however, cable car systems in various cities around the world where they are an integral part of the public transport network. Cable car systems can vary in terms of technology although basically they are made up of three components: stations, cables/support masts and gondolas. Imagine the following: At the station at Järnvågen you step into a gondola similar to a bus. It takes you up into the air, around 45 metres above the river, and five minutes later you arrive at the station at Lindholmen. It is estimated that the gondolas will travel at approximately 20 kilometres per hour and depart at intervals of at least eight seconds.

      Advantages and disadvantages of a cable car system

      One of the main advantages of a cable car system is its potential to offer a high frequency service that would offer very good and continuous capacity. Increasing the service level would not result in higher staffing costs as the gondolas do not need to be manned. A cable car system is also extremely energy efficient, virtually silent and a very safe and reliable mode of transport.

      The operating costs are relatively low and the construction time is short as it is possible to build all the support masts at the same time. Generally, it can be said that the investment and operating COSTs are considerably higher for a cable car system than for a bus system but lower than for a tram system. The investment costs, however, are low compared with investment in an alternative cross-river infrastructure.

      One of the disadvantages of a cable car system is that it would be a relatively prominent feature in the city landscape and it would require considerable thought in the design phase for it to blend in. Another disadvantage is that it could be a problem for people who are afraid of heights. It could also be regarded as being unsafe as the gondolas are unmanned and the stations could be deserted unless the location is planned very carefully. Manning the stations is a possibility. Legislation governing cable car systems is currently not adapted to a public transport system.

      System requirements for a cable car route between Järntorget and Wieselgrensplatsen (June 2015)

      • A tri-cable system with a detachable grip that would allow the use of large gondolas that offer good wind stability
      • Gondolas that stop completely for 2 x 20 seconds for smoother entry and exit
      • Vertical clearance across the Göta Älv river of at least 45 metres, which would mean 75-metre-high towers on either side of the river
      • Passenger capacity of around 3,000 standing passengers per hour in both directions
      • A new gondola would arrive every 45 seconds
      • Each gondola would have space for 25-30 standing passengers or a smaller number if there was a mixture of seated passengers, wheelchairs, prams or bicycles
      •The depot for the gondolas would not be located at the southern station (Järntorget)
      • The travelling speed would be six metres per second or approximately 22 kilometres per hour
