Movilidad local y periurbanización transfronteriza

Abstract : Applied to the Luxembourg cross-border metropolitan area, the analysis of local mobility system, bringing together interactions between commuting and residential mobility, creates a better understanding of the spatial consequences related to functional specialization and the development of a so-called cross-border periurbanization. Thus, from the conceptual links between urban sprawl and metropolisation enhanced by a unique mapping approach, it has been possible through the use of different data sources, to note three major processes. First, the employment area of the Grand Duchy has greatly expanded in recent years. Furthermore, if the capital has a deficit balance in terms of local residential mobility, it proves to be the main entrance of migrants. Finally, the border has two distinct roles. The first is attractive in terms of mobility between home and work. The second role of the border is both a barrier and a magnet: the dominant trend is to get closer, while accompanied by relatively low cross-border relocations.
