Mobycon collaborated with Evo Pods, a French consultancy, to provide Dutch expertise in designing safe intersections and crossings for two communities in France: Saint-Marcellin Vercors Isère Communauté (SMVIC) and Provence- Alpes Agglomération (PAA, centred on the city of Digne-lès-Bains). The two communities want to improve their cycling networks to address two challenges. In SMVIC, one of the key issues is the mobility of young and elderly people who represent 46 % of the population. In PAA, the car represents 70% of the modal share of the city Digne-lès-Bains, which makes the accessibility to the city centre dominated by this means of transport. They want to increase cycling rates, specifically on commuting and local trips between city-centre and outskirts, as well as improve the economic and touristic development of the areas. The two communities adopted a cycling masterplan with a clear vision to help the local authorities transform their cycling network into a more consistent and continuous one; an essential gap that France will have to fill to develop itself as a cycling nation.
