GDANSK: INNOVATIVE CYCLING-FRIENDLY STREET
In Gdansk a major street within the university district was completely remodeled in a cycling-friendly manner. Where it used to have two lanes cars and cyclists had to share, there is now one lane for cars and a wide bike lane for cyclists. Various other measures have been taken to transform the street into one that is more cycling-friendly, e.g. bike boxes at junctions in combination with an indirect left turn.
The planning team of the municipality was inspired by the abc-study trip to Copenhagen and Malmo in 2012.
For more information about the innovative solution, please visit: www.abcmultimodal.eu/planning-gdansk.html
