Copenhagen: Road revitalization for enhanced public transport and bicycle use The Nørrebrogade road stretches over 2 km from the center of Copenhagen to its suburban periphery. The narrow design of the road places public transport users, cyclists and pedestrians in direct competition with private vehicles which results in regular traffic jams and reduces road safety. To address this, the City launched the Nørrebrogade Project to revitalize this major transportation corridor, increase cycling and public transportation ridership, while reducing private automobile use by 50% in the area. The results of this first phase are inspiring: road transport has reduced by 45% and bicycle ridership has increased by 10%.
