Why protected bike lanes are more valuable than parking spaces


Vox, 5 September 2018

Data shows that the 9th Avenue bike lane produced economic, mobility and safety benefits. “We saw crashes go down, some 47%, retail sales went up almost 49%, cars dad dedicated turn lanes so the traffic processed much better, and bikes had a dedicated lane. So it was a win for business, it was a win for drivers, it was a win for people on foot and it was a win for people on two wheels, and that really set the stage for all that followed.”

Brooklyn bridge study sizes up expansion


New York Times, 17 August 2016

It’s a good problem to have right? Bicycling is now a mainstream mode of transportation in New York City. Almost a million New Yorkers now are riding their bikes regularly. And we should be providing for cycling as we provide for motoring in New York City.

New York’s streets? Not so mean anymore


Janette Sadik-Khan, TED, September 2013

And so, I think that the lesson that we have from New York is that it’s possible to change your streets quickly, it’s not expensive, it can provide immediate benefits, and it can be quite popular. You just need to reimagine your streets. They’re hidden in plain sight.

Lisbon Bikeway


P-06 Atelier, 2008-2009, Lisboa, Portugal

The lane runs along the river Tagus, and with its 7362 meters it crosses different urban spaces each one demanding different solutions. The goal was to define a new urban environment beyond the bikeway, in order to improve this area along the river. The selection of compatible and existing materials was considered in order to make clear the readability and use of the new system.
