In Episode 02, Copenhagenize Design Co’s Pedro Madruga speaks about The Green Wave for cyclists in Copenhagen as one of our Top 10 Design Elements in a bicycle-friendly Copenhagen.
The Green Wave is coordinated traffic lights for cyclists. Ride 20 km/h and you won’t put a foot down on your journey into the city centre in the morning and home again in the afternoon.
On Nørrebrogade, the first street to feature the Green Wave, the number of cyclists increased by 15%. Traffic flow in the intense morning bicycle rush hour was improved, providing Citizen Cyclists with a smoother, more efficient journey.
Now, several major arteries leading to the city centre in Copenhagen feature the Green Wave for cyclists.
Think bicycle first and you’re on your way to a more bicycle-friendly city.
