Tampere Travel and Service Centre has not only the potential to become a gateway to Tampere and the rest of Finland, but also the potential of becomming a generator for the future development of the urban centre of Tampere. The vision, "ReConnecting Tampere", introduces an intermodal transportation hub in the heart of the city as well as a development plan for uniting the city centre. By introducing a diverse urban structure that extends from the east to west across the railyard, the project provides a solid and robust foundation for unifying the two sides of Tampere’s city center once and for all.
