Abstract [en]

In Visby, cruise calls have become less frequent over the years and to prevent this development it has been decided to build a cruise port located south of Visby harbor. To reach Visby the cruise passengers need to pass through the harbor and all its crossings. However, in Visby harbor the ferries to the mainland are already causing traffic jams during peak season and without a functioning transport solution the cruise passengers will probably cause even bigger problems. In order to encourage a sustainable tourism a traffic solution for the harbor needs to be presented. The aim of this study is to evaluate how the new cruise port will affect the traffic situation in Gotland, both local and regional. A qualitative study has been carried out to gather information and opinions from local actors in Gotland, regarding traffic and tourism. Based on this qualitative study and a method developed by the Swedish transportadministration, four different transport solutions have been evaluated. One shuttlebus solution and three different walkways. These solutions have been simulated in the software Vissim in order to evaluate the efficiency for each solution, and in Enviver to calculate the emissions they cause. The study shows that the walkway that does not affect traffic in the harbor is the solution that is most efficient and has lowest emissions, but it also demands large investments. The shuttlebus solution was also efficient but with higher emissions and it is dependent on buses and drivers to be available.
