MOVE Mobility was invited by the Dutch Embassy in Romania for a two-day fact finding mission in Bucharest.
Of course the topics that were discussed included integrated planning, multimodality, cycling infrastructure and how the city is organised. Five main requirements for cycling: safe, straight, consistent, comfortable and attractive were discussed. Present were planners, engineers, advisors, councillors from the City Hall and representatives from NGO’s.
The conclusion is that together we can let Bucharest become a “Cycling City”. Recommendations for the way forward on the short term were made.
