Project summary:

There are 653 business zones in Slovenia (2019), which represent important generators of motorized traffic. To date, little attention has been paid to mobility management in business-industrial zones. The project brings new knowledge and experience, which will be gathered in the recommendations for mobility management in business-industrial zones. Industrial zone (IZ) Trata is located in the NE part of Škofja Loka and extends along the Ljubljana – Jesenice railway line. There are approx 5,000 employees in the IZ Trata. According to the estimates of the 3 participating companies (LTH Castings, Knauf Insulation, SIBO Group, September 2021), up to 94% of their employees commute by car, which causes traffic jams, reduces traffic safety, reduces the quality of life and is an important source of greenhouse gas emissions. The project aims to contribute to changing the travel habits of employees in the three participating companies, namely by increasing the use of sustainable forms of mobility and, as a result, improving the management of sustainable mobility in the IZ Trata. An analysis of the situation will be carried out and the identification of employees who have the opportunity to change their travel habits, which is also the goal of various strategies and policies at the local and national level.
