Width is everything

Research of CROW (which is the Dutch knowledge centre of infrastructure, public space, traffic, and safety) showed that the width of bicycle lanes has impact on the objective and subjective road safety. Therefor they recommend that bicycle lanes need at least be wide enough to enable two cyclist to cycle abreast of each other. Additionally, the width of the bicycle lane increases clarity and leads to the desired traffic behaviour.

Due to the recommendation of the research of the CROW the municipality of Wageningen decided on widening the bicycle lanes on the Nude. You are invited to enjoy the result!
