Increasing numbers of cyclists on Copenhagen’s cycle tracks require new approaches to planning and implementing cycling infrastructure. Casper Wulff of consulting company and new member of the Cycling Embassy of Denmark, Rambøll, points to ITS technology as part of the answer.
“Copenhagen has long been known as one of the world’s leading cities for cycling. In some areas of the city, the modal share of bikes has reached a level of as much as 50 per cent and on some of the most frequently used bike paths the average daily number of cyclists is close to 30,000. As these numbers continue to rise, new ways of planning and implementing cycling infrastructure are needed.” ITS technology like green waves and dynamic buss stops can help increase safety.
