Time for a new cycling infrastructure

Cycling is a means of transport that is rapidly regaining ground. At the same time, there is a broad-based desire to promote and encourage cycling in society. The bicycle is the second to none from a sustainability point of view. A modern infrastructure is now required for one of the most natural means of transport of the future.

Cycling is fast, flexible, low-cost and promotes good health. If more people cycled in cities, traffic congestion would be a thing of the past. There would be less noise and the air we breathe would be cleaner. However, if we are to succeed in developing a first-class cycling infrastructure, all the stakeholders in both private and public sectors must make a concerted effort.  

The bicycle is its own mode of transport

We believe that, in future, the bicycle will attain the same, obvious position as a life-style habit that the car has enjoyed for a long time, at home, at work and in society. The time is right to treat the bicycle as its own mode of transport in its own right, when developing urban areas. We need a cycling infrastructure that will enable cyclists to travel easily, quickly and safely. You should be able to park your bike without problems and travel smoothly and safely over municipal boundaries.

For us at NCC, a first-class cycling infrastructure is a prerequisite of meeting the sustainability challenges faced by society – environmentally, socially and financially.
