Future Scenario - Multiple Schemes
- Overcoming site severance
- Improving integration with Libreville
- Creating a new well connected district
As Lead Consultant, The Princes Foundation for Building Community contracted WSP to use Place Logic to to facilitate a range of studies including local policy making, masterplanning and understanding the effects of significant alterations to networks.
PLACE LOGIC complements the transport modelling process, by providing an excellent precursor to a full blown transport model.
Angondje is a new
urban extension on the northern edge of Libreville. With a proposed population well in excess of
100,000, it will be the largest single population growth area in Gabon, where
it is seen as an opportunity to create a new district representing everything
that Gabon aspires
The Princes Foundation challenged WSP to identify how the framework masterplan could best connect and engage communities by ensuring that:
- Angondje was well integrated with the rest of Libreville’s existing infrastructure, and
- the centre of each community within the masterplan area was directly linked to the other with a main street.
The Street Activity maps (Figs 1-3) show:
- Fig 2 analysis of the initial concept framework clarified the position of the proposed transport structure within the wider urban complexity. The diagrams were used for briefing purposes and informed necessary modifications.
- Fig 3 analysis of the refined transport structure with an extended east-west grid. Two additonal links (A and B) were created to integrate better the network with the existing settlements and to disperse Street Activity on links with Libreville.
