Analysis of the accessibility of location options for the relocation of the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald District Office (2020-2021)

The district of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald intended to relocate its district administration office in the course of necessary investment decisions. S&W prepared a site assessment in which suitable site options were identified from a transport point of view and evaluated in terms of their suitability on a scientifically sound basis. The focus of the report was on the accessibility of the current locations of the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald District Office and the possible alternative locations by car, public transport, pedelec, bicycle and on foot. The analysis and evaluation of the changes in accessibility triggered by a relocation was carried out both for the employees of the district administration office and for visitors from the district of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald. The expected modal split and the respective transport costs were presented using a model for the choice of means of transport.
