Santander to boost size of bicycle network (Spain)


English

The city of Santander on the north coast of Spain is to expand its cycling infrastructure to make cycling a more viable sustainable transport option for residents.

The plans, announced by the mayor and councillor for sustainable mobility, will see a four-fold increase in the current network of bicycle lanes.

Additional facilities include covered and safe bicycle parking places in strategic locations of the city and small car parks.

These will be closed structures with video surveillance that are accessible only by a smart card.
