The Cyclewalk Project aimed at supporting the shift from car usage to cycling and walking mobility patterns over shorter distances, improving the accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists. CYCLEWALK will also contribute to the transition to a more sustainable alternative for urban mobility.
The partnership is composed of seven partners from six European countries (Romania, Italy, Slovenia, Holland, Lithuania, Austria).
The project introduced quality criteria for proper walking and cycling infrastructure in the policy instruments and projects, through the following activities:
- study visits, complemented with assessment walking and cycling tours;
- technical working tables with stakeholders;
- training and full technical and scientific advise provided by the Urban Cycling Institute to technical offices, regional experts and universities.
The Project Partners achieved the objectives of CYCLEWALK through a properly designed interregional learning model on the different regional processes. The regions selected and adopted the best practices collected in each other’s and those suggested by the advisory partner; the adoption was carried out according to the action plan developed by each partner.
The partners defined a common methodology for the action plan clearing how the knowledge acquired through the interregional learning was implemented and how the quality criteria were ensured by the future cycling and walking measures and investments.
