Dissing+Weitling contributes to the City of Copenhagen's goal of improving the bicycle infrastructure with bicycle bridges, cycle superhighways and other ‘mobility improvements’ for cyclists in the capital region.
Designing for bikes
For the Cycle Superhighways project we have prepared an 'inspiration catalogue' for the City of Copenhagen, with analyses of bicycle conditions in the Copenhagen area, including proposals for new and better cycle routes, analyses of infrastructure facilities, suggestions for bridge connections, underpasses, intelligent traffic signals, and cross-roads solutions.
We established a ranking system in the catalogue, together with type solutions and costs to enable communities to design a bicycle strategy.
In addition to concrete proposals for the best types of bicycle bridge and infrastructure, the catalogue describes how comfort for cyclists can be enhanced, how construction costs can be reduced and how safety can be improved.
Dissing+Weitling qualified for the project after having been the architect for a number of bridges, the Quay Bridge, the Bicycle Snake and Åbuen Bridge, which is part of the Green Bicycle Pathway in central Copenhagen.
