Barcelona to increase cycling network “165%” by 2018 with €32m investment
Mark Sutton August 9, 2016
Barcelona’s City Council has outlined plans to invest €32 million in what it describes as a “coherent, connected and complete” cycling infrastructure network.
With complaints of lack of continuity with the existing network, the Council has pledged to evenly cover the city, with work beginning on five new cycle lanes from this summer.
During the first half of 2016, work has also been underway to complete four new lanes at a total cost of €515,196. The work expands upon Barcelona’s existing 116 kilometres of cycle routes.
