Rom Eiendom AS administrates large, central areas close to public transport nodes in several Norwegian cities. When developing a new strategy for redevelopment of such areas, Rom wanted a knowledge basis for assessing transport-related consequences, as well as a specific analysis of Rom’s development in Bjørvika in Oslo. The literature shows central nodal point development results in far less car traffic compared to development in other areas. In the concrete analysis we found that construction of office buildings for 12,500 jobs in Bjørvika will save Oslo 7.300 car trips and 104.000 vkm a day compared to locating these work spaces similar to the current distribution in Oslo. This saves 12 tonnes CO2 emissions, 12 kg NOx emissions and 7 kg NO2 emissions a day, as well as 18 MWh of energy for transport. Revised version
