if you have such a lens doesn't smile anymore, and in a town with a defunct retail stores also end of the le in any way. Where, instead, the feeling of insecurity increased.
As usual, people are leaving the regions to take more of shadow the forces of the above and then förslummas, and dies in the city centre. Examples of this can be found all around the world. Now, it does not paint the image of the city, in all of the dark colors, but because of crime and drug trafficking are some of the uncertainties I would like to reflect a little bit.
the city of Gothenburg has, for many years, has taken steps to reduce the traffic congestion in the city centre.
It has been done by taking away traffic lanes and street parking. It is a good thing, if not cities, short-circuited by the traffic, but the question is, what are the alternatives really offer. When I was in the other cities and towns in Europe, I am often struck by how we have succeeded in combining the different interests in the construction of large underground car parks, adjacent to the pedestrian zone in the center of the city.
In the West, the package is kollektivtrafiklösningar, which provides an alternative to the car, and I think that the Västlänken railway tunnel is a good idea.
However, it seems that the implementation of the actions in the wrong order. We take away the possibility to reach the city center by car, for many years prior to, the alternative solution is in place.
in Order to finance the West Swedish package has been the introduction of a congestion charge. Yes, in a way there's got to be funded, but you can't think of what the general economy is going, when they felt the need for a large investment in 20 or 30 years, but it is not stopped away from one end of the stay.
this year, it was a mess with different builds. It's not just about the Västlänken railway tunnel. The traffic conditions during the summer have been downright absurd. It is clear that you need to do short-term unit set-up and regulations and how to implement them can be discussed. I feel that sometimes it is a lack of sensitivity to pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike, and, not least, shopkeepers, and other traders in the centre of the city.
In addition to the circumstances described above there is an ongoing structural shift in the way we act. We are buying more and more online, and it will of course retail sales.
It is in this context, it should be that the phenomenon of groups of boys and young men who are staying in the city centre, and is involved with the drug trade and other criminal activities. A lot of them are using drugs. A number of them reported on a regular basis for a criminal offence, but the English criminal law is so forgiving that if you just stick in the normalintervallet will, in practice, it straffimmun for a while.
Many people have different views about gangs, how they create a climate of insecurity, and how the drug trade is linked to organised criminal networks, which account for the major share of the skjutvapenvåldet. However, it is not for this group of young men who caused the death of the stores must close, or that motorists avoid travel to Gothenburg, sweden.
What we have in a different way.
there is, however, there may be a part of it, to fill the gap, if ordinary people, will no longer be left in the center of the city. From this point of view, it would be seen as a symptom which causes the the place, perhaps, to be found in urban planning, transport policy decisions, and changes in patterns of consumption. < / span> < / span>
