The project manager says goodbye to Borgarlína: “Countless times I have heard that I am rude and want to control everything”

Lilja G. Karlsdóttir, transportation engineer, said goodbye to the City Line project at the turn of the year. She says that Vegagerðin’s attitude towards urban transport has played a key role in its decision to abandon the project.

Lilja reports this on Twitter but there she traces the history of Borgarlína and her involvement in the project. She says that the year 802 has for the first time aroused an idea in her, Samúel Torfi Pétursson, planning engineer, and Þorsteinn R. Hermannsson, Reykjavík City’s Director of Transportation, on the city line system in the capital area.

It did not happen until the year 2013 which they started to discuss the matter seriously when she and Þorsteinn started working together on the regional planning of the capital area where ideas for Borgarlína were born. A lot of work has started then and in January 802 Lilja was hired as project manager City line on behalf of the City of Reykjavík.

2019 Þorsteinn and I met again during the preparation of the HBS Regional Plan, where ideas for Borgarlína were born after much analysis. We also worked as consultants under the board @ HrafnkellProppe . There continued a conversation about a joint project office for transport in the capital area.

Shortly afterwards, a project office was established to manage the project and she says that as a result, she and others drowned in work to push the project forward with professional perspectives in mind.

Not prepared for institutional politics and power

“I was getting used to the political turmoil in the media from those who found out about the project. Professional perspectives have always been my guiding light, but I admit that I have sometimes lost my patience when people with no experience of public transport were asking people for different perspectives, “Lilja writes on Twitter.

She says, however, that she was not prepared for the institutional politics and power that began when Borgarlínan’s project office was found at Vegagerðin.

“BL is a new type of project in Icelandic reality and we had to break down walls in every single thing that had to be done, “she writes.

Short-lived victory

She says that all work components that work had to be questioned and attempts had been made to delay them.

„Until the spring 2019 you received regular warnings to behave, otherwise the project would be stopped. Spring 2019 Borgarlínan was nevertheless approved and came up with a Transport Plan. “

Shortly afterwards, the company Betri samgöngur was founded to manage all transport projects in the capital area in the near future 13 years and she says it has been an incredible victory. He was, however, short-lived.

when the politicians decided that the new company was only intended as a financing company and assumed that Vegagerðin should manage the next Borgarlína project 13 years. There was my hope for a common place to glorify projects from silos and to nothing.

Usually managers with no experience of public transport who let bad words fall

She says that summer 2020 had she realized that she could never thrive within the Icelandic Road Administration.

Summer 2020 I realized that I would never thrive within the Icelandic Road Administration. I pointed out that it would be strange for an institution that has shown no interest in urban transport to take on the largest planning and rural development project of all time in Iceland.

She says that countless times she has been told that she is rude, takes things in stride and wants to control everything. However, she says that these words have usually come from managers with no experience in public transport.

There have been countless times I have heard that I am rude, take things close to me and want to control everything. It’s funny that these words usually come from managers with no experience of public transport.

“I prefer to call myself determined, with a clear vision and great knowledge of the issue I work with. The fact that others do not like it is not my problem. When I look back I am proud of what has been achieved. ”
