Germany Opens Bicycle Superhighway Tauheed Ahmad May 10, 2017 Amazing & Incredible 502 Germany is taking its well-known Autobahn to an entire new level by making one for cyclists and put its pedals where its mouth is and opened its first bicycle-only highway, a three-mile stretch of protected roadway that is closed to cars and other motor vehicles. They are on the way to build a 100km long super highway for bicycles only, and bike-lovers can already cycle the first five kilometers. Therefore, the highway will eventually connect 10 western cities including Duisburg, Bochum and Hamm. Moreover it will be built along abandoned railroad tracks in Ruhr industrial region. According to Martin Toennes of regional development group RVR, about 2 million people living in the area will be able to travel on this route, which should result in 50,000 cars less on the roads every day. Europe’s first bicycle highway was well approved in London earlier this year, and others are in the works in the Holland and Denmark.Source: Boredpanda Originally posted 2016-01-04 21:17:40.
