#summerofcycling goes on:
👉Pop-up bike lanes are the new kids on the block. 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️
An incomplete summary. Thread ⬇️.
cont'd: Pop-up bike lanes (or emergency bike lanes) are temporary cycling infrastructure to help cyclists to maintain spatial distance to minimise the risk of infection and relieve public transport.
@Felix_Weisbrich on #TUMITV about the concept:
cont'd: The City of Berlin 🇩🇪 developed so called traffic regulation plans for quick implementation. Companies specializing in road marking are familiar with this type of template and work from construction sites, using markings and cones. Templates: https://www.berlin.de/sen/uvk/_assets/verkehr/verkehrsplanung/radverkehr/regelplaene_radverkehrsanlagen.pdf
cont'd: The wider planning process is elaborated in this guide ”Making Safe Space for Cycling in 10 Days: A Guide to Temporary bike lanes from Berlin”:
https://mobycon.com/updates/a-guide-to-temporary-bike-lanes-from-berlin/ #summerofcycling
cont'd: Pop-up bike lanes have attracted widespread international application: http://pedbikeinfo.org/resources/resources_details.cfm?id=5209; and as the Mayor of Tirana put it: “Pop-Up-Bike-Lanes are fast, cheap and safe! If it can be done in Tirana, Albania - it can be done anywhere!“: .
cont'd: Costs: Berlin estimates 9,500 Euro/km, Bogota about 5,500 ERU/km; costs are depending on local circumstances, quality etc. https://twitter.com/TUMInitiative/status/1268268269636591617 #summerofcycling
