At Vestre Billingstad in Asker, a completely new residential area is being established. 1650 homes will be built on stage in a collaboration between 4 different builders. The special thing about this residential area is that it must be green, urban and sustainable. Areas of residence, housing environment and mobility shall facilitate high quality and low car use. A key concept of the initiative is Green Mobility. It will be easy and attractive to choose the car in everyday life. This should be achieved by making the options as good as possible. And by arranging for some to escape the unwanted trips by car. Green mobility is backed into the housing project itself from the first day.
