Task 5.2: Implementing cycling and walking measures in your city.
Think of a recent measure that was implemented in your city/region that supports walking or cycling.
1. Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?
Implementation of 30 km/h lanes in main city streets. The main concern was road safety for cyclists, since car drivers were not used to coexist with them in main city roads. Fortunately, the measure is working well in the city and we have not had major problems.
2. Has the measure’s impact on congestion been evaluated after implementation? If yes, how do the figures compare to those presented in this unit? If not, which are the obstacles to do so?
No, it has not been evaluated. Maybe because we are not used to do it.
