Social consequences in public transport projects : A study about how social consequences have been considered in the planning process of the metro line to Arenastaden (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Public transport projects have a large impact on social sustainability. Social sustainability is a current topic, but there is still an uncertainty about how the aspiration to approach social sustainability should be addressed. This is in particular valid for public transport projects.

The aim of this study was to investigate how the Traffic Administration, the authority for public transport in the Stockholm County, regards to the issue of social consequences in their projects. A specific case was chosen; the metro line to Arenastaden. A compilation of social consequences in relation to public transport was made in order to obtain the aim of the study. In transport literature, social consequences can be broken down to socially determining variables and outcome variables. These indicate what and who is affected by the project. In addition to the theoretical background, practical tools that serve to enhance social consequences, such as social impact assessment, have been investigated and four practical tools that are applicable on public transport projects were chosen. This was made as a complement to the theory and to target additional social variables.

In order to study the Arenastad line, a qualitative text analysis was applied. A search for explicitly stated social consequences and social variables was made, by searching for words and sentences that address social consequences in the official planning documents of the metro line to Arenastaden. In complement to the text analysis, unstructured interviews have been carried out. The interviewees are civil servants that have great knowledge about social impact assessments or have been involved in the Arenastad line project. 

The result of the study shows that social consequences and social variables have been taken into account in the official planning documents of the Arenastad line. These analyses have primarily served as an additional perspective but have not functioned as guidance for the choice of project. Most of the social assessments have been conducted at a late stage in the planning process and the results have been presented under certain headlines, in certain sections or in specific reports.

The social analysis of the Arenastad line has left out issues of economic exclusion, and social variables linked to socio economy, such as poverty and economic accessibility to transport. In addition, an analysis that puts the Arenastad line in a regional social context is missing.
