Copenhagen ministers are now looking at new ways to prevent two-wheeled traffic jams in Europe’s cycling mecca.
New electronic information boards will help to alleviate any cycle jams. CYCLE JAMS! THEY’VE GOT SO MANY BLINKING BIKES ON THE ROADS, THEY’RE GETTING JAMMED.
Morten Kabell, the city’s head of technology and environment department, said ‘There’s a need for improved accessibility for the growing number of cyclists who unfortunately in many places are now having to fight for space on the bike lane. We’re hoping with these new information boards to give cyclists the opportunity to choose the least congested route through the city’.
A helpful app, ibikecph, will also get an update showing riders new “green” routes that will usher riders down 60km of less congested routes. Copenhagen plans to add a further 57km of “green” routes to provide more opportunity for riders to avoid the busier routes through the city.
