The City of Stockholm through the Traffic and Public Transport and the shopping center company Citycon AB, have agreed in a joint effort to increase comfort and safety in the Högdalen Center. The enhanced and coordinated resources are to provide a safer urban environment and a more attractive Högdalen Center.
- Everyone is a winner if we work together towards the goal - merchants, residents and visitors. Creating attractive shopping centers in the city's different neighbourhoods is an important part of a growing city and a prerequisite for Stockholmers’ desire to visit and spend more time in their nearest center, says Vice Mayor, Traffic and Labour Market Division, Ulla Hamilton (M).
- We will review the lighting, signage and do a face lift of the environments in and around to make Högdalen center a more enjoyable and safer place, says Isabel Enberg, Shopping Center Leader at Citycon.
She adds: Together we can create better conditions for all residents and visitors in Högdalen and build a nice and lively city center.
Together Citycon and the City of Stockholm, Traffic Office, implement a comprehensive program of actions. Among the points agreed on are measures like:
• Transport Authority undertakes to carry out machine sweeping and emptying trash cans seven days a week. The program covers Högdalen C, and nearby streets / spaces.
