The WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities, and its EMBARQ sustainable mobility initiative recently published its new guidelines “Cities Safer by Design.” This report provides key design principles for cities to make street safer. The publication was qualified during EMBARQ’s participation in the Cycling Embassy of Denmark’s “Bikeable City Masterclass.”
How do we make more car drivers take the bicycle to work and school each morning? That was the challenge given to IS IT A BIRD by The Technical and Environmental Administration in the City of Copenhagen earlier this year.
What does it take for the Danes to cycle? Most people know that cycling is healthier than going by car or bus. Even so, it is hard for people to change their behaviour. Both the physical surroundings and individual conditions influence our choice of our means of transport in our daily lives.
Focus on cycling is a new publication, communicating guidelines for the road projects in the city of Copenhagen. The purpose is to contribute to road projects in Copenhagen being designed so that bicycle traffic is considered as optimal as possible.
