- Turn the new tramlines into a structural axis in the northern urban area where the port and the city meet, linking the city with the port area and offering new non-car dependent transport for port employees.
- Guarantee the accessibility of city and port during the large infrastructural works for the new tram corridor and using this momentum to change the transport choices of citizens towards public transport and cycling.
- Significant reduction of car dependency of commuters working in the port, overcoming physical and mindset barriers typical for port cities and removing barriers in finding appropriate employees.
- Avoid, shift and improve car and truck traffic in and around the city in order to reduce the congestion levels on urban and regional axes while simultaneously improving the living quality in the urban area.
