Publish date:

Capital of Denmark Copenhagen is planning to enhance its cycling credentials with a major network of 13 cycle routes around the city, according to blog

The city is aiming to swell the numbers of cycle commuters – which already includes 55 per cent of the city’s citizens – and attract those that travel between seven and 15 km to travel to work in the area.

The lanes, which are expected to cost $47million (250 million kroner), will boast a number of features, including:

- Cycle 'service stations' along all routes with air and tools
- Smooth even surfaces that are free of leaves, ice and snow
- Routes that are as direct as possible with no detours
- Sufficient width to overtake other cyclists and the chance to maintain high speeds
- Priority for cyclists at safe and quick crossings where streets are crossed
