Athens’ Bicycle Lane Network To Be Expanded
The City of Athens in cooperation with C40 cities initiative and the Walking and Cycling Network are planning to expand the city's bicycle lanes to include the areas of Ambelokipi, Exarchia, Kolonaki, Kypseli, and Petralona. The project aims to reduce traffic and pollution, while making Athens a more cyclist-friendly city. The new bicycle lanes will be added to the existing route that connects Gazi, a downtown neighborhood, to Faliro on the southern coast of Athens. In the meantime, plans to connect Gazi to Kifissia, are already in progress.
According to the municipality, the main goal of the project is to create a functional and user-friendly network of cycling routes that will eventually expand to include even more areas in the city Athens.
