Bab al Medina project was one of seven major urban scale projects integrated in the general Masterplan of Tripoli. Located at the south-eastern part of the city, it is geographically linked with two others major urban scale projects: the 'Al Jumhuriyah street development project', and the 'Tripoli Green Belt'.
The site is defined to the north by Al Jumhuriyah street and by the First Ring Road to the south. The boulevard between these two axes is one of the main accesses to the city. The project for the industrial wasteland is a mixed-use development including residences, hotels, office and retail.
MIC was appointed as traffic and mobility consultant for the masterplan development. In close coordination with the multidisciplinary project team, MIC developed the road network layout for the road facing the development and the internal network, creating new transversal links to reconnect the adjacent urban fabric. The layout and typology of the new junctions was carefully assessed with Sidra, a micro-analytical traffic evaluation tool.
In order to support the development of a sustainable masterplan, a set of strategies for alternative mobility were studied, as well as parking distribution and strategy for the entire masterplan.
