Inspiration from the Netherlands

Delft_woonerf.jpgIn the Netherlands, the current era of sustainable mobility began more than 40 years ago. Delft was the first Dutch town to build a complete bicycle network, combining various forms of separated and mixed infrastructure. In fact, only about half the bicycle infrastructure in the Netherlands is separated. Other spaces mix road users using approaches like Shared Spaces in 30 kilometre zones. Delft’s city centre is now largely car-free thanks to retractable bollards that only allow vehicles of mobility-impaired users, delivery – at designated times – emergency and other authorized users to enter. 

Check out this video to see how cyclists and pedestrians mix in the Delft city centre.
