Abstract

The Ngrdie Triangle is the tra~e network cennecting the Nordic capitals Copenhagen, Oslo, Stoeldaolm and Helsinkl to each other. In Finland, it consists of the Turku- Helsinki-Vainikkala railway and its connections to essential harbours, the E18 highway, the most important south coast harbours, Helsinki-Vantaa airport and subsidiary rune- lions (Figure 1).

Planning for the Nordic Triangle has to a very large extent taken place within each transport mode separately, and only limited consideration has been given to how these modes and projects interact and how they together affect their environment.
