Frankfurt on the way to becoming a cycling city – a workshop report of the City of Frankfurt am Main
Wednesday 10.00 – 11.15 am / Block Side Event
Frankfurt on the way to becoming a cycling city – a workshop report Since the city council’s decision to make Frankfurt a cycling city and the agreement with the bicycle referendum, a lot has been happening in Frankfurt: In 2021, the Main metropolis received an award in the ADFC Bicycle Climate Test and was invited to be honoured again in 2023. At the same time, many streets are still reminiscent of the car-oriented city, but Frankfurt is accepting the challenge and is in the midst of a transformation.
The city of Frankfurt provides an insight into the successes and failures of recent years.
- How do you deal with a bicycle parking station that isn’t working?
- Don’t be afraid of private motorised transport – cycling corridor along Friedberger Landstraße.
- Layout of cycle lanes on construction sites – exploiting the opportunity to redistribute traffic space.
- Providing more bicycle parking facilities that are safe for pedestrians.
- Upgrading Schweizer Straße – Transforming the transport system with civic participation and competition.
