Cycling Infrastructure Design
The design of cycling facilities can often be a weakness - even where there is the political will and funding to implement improvements. The introduction of new sub-standard routes can be frustrating to users, and potentially damage the reputation and value of cycling investments. Good practice is increasingly commonplace, with particularly well known examples from our Cycling Capitals. Amsterdam and Copenhagen will work together in Handshake to bring contrasting approaches from the Netherlands and Denmark together for the first time in a project, advising a number of cities what is most appropriate and deliverable in their own context.
Bigger and better cycling facilities
Both Amsterdam and Copenhagen can help cities be ambitious and pre-empt the cycling success that well designed, high quality facilities bring. Our cities will learn about using innovative engineering solutions to tackle the challenges of intersections and segregating routes, whilst providing enough capacity to comfortably cater for future increases in cycling numbers.
