Bicycle Highways

Buenos Aires, Argentina ,2020

In @buenosaires, the existing bicycle infrastructure is currently being expanded by 17 km of new bike lanes on busy avenues, using areas that were previously occupied by parked cars. They aim to function like #bicyclehighways, as these streets connect residential areas directly to the city center, which provides important work and educational facilities.

The implementation of colorful markings and tactical cycle lanes at critical intersections and streets is an easy and quick way to make cycling safer #tacticalurbanism. They can also encourage non-users and infrequent cyclists to cycle more, as they feel more comfortable in separated designated areas.
