Bicycle Infrastructure Guideline for Colombian Cities
On April 28th the Colombian Ministry of Transport published the first Bicycle Infrastructure Guideline for Colombian cities. The document will serve local leaders and technical professionals as a guide for the construction of projects which provide adequate infrastructure for cycling.
The guide was prepared by the Ministry of Transport, through the Sustainable Urban Mobility Unit and supported and revised by national and international experts, including the Colombian TRANSfer team, considering that this guide is a part of the NAMA TanDem Measures in Colombia.
For the preparation of the publication a thorough research with users, initiatives and citizen groups, officials and experts was conducted through various workshops and consultation activities in several Colombian cities.
The purpose of this guideline and his infrastructure design recommendations is to include bicycles in urban policies and to facilitate a fair secure and efficient infrastructure for this mode of transportation in Colombian cities.
The digital version of this guide can be found here.
Additionally, if you would like to have further information about the guide, its authors (a consortium of despacio and gea21) realized a webinar, which you can find here.
