In the last few decades the Municipality of Drammen has done a lot to visually improve the city. The new Ypsilon bridge which is for pedestrians and cyclists only has opened, the traffic was redirected, a new city beach was constructed, and the river was cleaned. Modernization projects have been a success and, with the introduction of new housing, shopping facilities, restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as a public pathway along the Drammens elva river, Drammen is today one of Norway’s fastest growing cities.
Extremely active fish preservation measures ensure that there are plenty of fish to catch, even in easily accessible waters.
Drammen City wishes to continue its efforts to modernize the city by developing a digital urban ecosystem that will bring benefits to its citizens in areas such as mobility, public safety, health and productivity. This urban ecosystem emphasizes the use of digital technology and shared knowledge to realize the benefits.
