The Berlin district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg was one of the first cities to implement temporary infrastructure to facilitate safer and more comfortable cycling in reaction to these changing mobility patterns. We are proud to have supported Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg in the development of these measures and were asked by the district to produce this guidebook. This guide provides a good foundation for planning safe, temporary infrastructure that can be implemented almost immediately in towns and cities that do not currently offer enough space for cyclists. It serves as inspiration to cities worldwide that want to do something, but don’t know how to start.
As an early adopter in fully implementing temporary cycling facilities in response to distancing measures set in place during the Corona crisis, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg wanted to share their process with other cities to help them achieve similar outcomes. Members of the Office for Roads and Green Spaces engaged Mobycon to support them in documenting the process of creating a series of temporary bike lanes in just ten days.
