More than 100 kilometers of bikeways will be built in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
A meeting of bike society activists has taken place on the last week. The meeting was devoted to a new plan of bikeway construction. Participants were able to see the plan of future track scheme with their own eyes.

The plan of infrastructure development considers construction of 100 km of bikeways. The longest track will connect “Switzerland” park with Podnovye. It will pass through banks of Volga and Oka rivers as well as Chernigovskaya street and Nizhnevolzhskaya embankment. The organizers are also certain about the fact that it is also necessary to build additional bikeway along the Grebnoy Channel. It will be located on the pedestrian part of Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street and on the Kremlin territory. All bikeways will be 0.75 meters wide. They will be located separately from pedestrian pavement.

Organizers have also offered to combine bike society development program together with “Green Policy” program. That is why it is necessary to build additional bikeways along small rivers and banks of recreation zones. Bikers will do everything necessary in order to clean all that mess and rubbish in these zones. Bike activists are also planning to turn to local authorities with request to unite special zones which are provided for public transport with bikeways. It is also necessary to create additional parking places for those who ride bicycles.

By the way, the first bikeway has been opened in Nizhny Novgorod in June 2014.
