31 Jan 2017 Draft cycling strategy for City of Cape Town: Comment now
The City has compiled a Draft Cycling Strategy, which is a component of the broader Non-motorised Transport Strategy. The Draft Cycling Strategy for Cape Town is available for public comment. It is important that we all read this document and give input. The strategy was developed by cyclists and they will get what you’re saying. Comments close on 21 February 2017.
From the City’s website:
Recognising that cycling is an increasingly important and growing part of the City’s transport solution, the bicycle is rapidly becoming a favoured mode of transport in liveable cities.
This allows for the provision of low cost, environmentally friendly and effective options for mobility and accessibility. The aim is to encourage and grow Utility Cycling to increase the use of bicycles from the current 1% to 8% by 2030, which will contribute to the reduction of commuter costs, traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
Part of our process is to give you the opportunity to submit comments, input or recommendations in respect of the Draft Cycling Strategy.
