Sharing the Sidewalk

Whether the sidewalk is a narrow strip of concrete or a wide flower-lined promenade, there are always competing demands for this space. Should cyclists have priority or pedestrians or those using personal mobility devices? Designer Dick van Veen shared some ideas on the subject at the Walk21 International Conference on Walking and Liveable Communities in Munich, Germany, September 9 – 11, 2013.

Sharing Dutch cycle planning expertise

Dick van Veen presents ThinkBike. Helsinki, Finland has been integrating cycling facilities into the city’s infrastructure since the 1960s with a strict division between heavy and light traffic resulting in a system that puts cyclists on sidewalks with pedestrians. The mix has resulted in complaints from pedestrians causing the city to reconsider their approach to cycle planning with help from Dutch experts.
