Type of solution: Adding infrastructure
A solution to improve air quality and connectivity and to contribute to the capacity problems on the roads and in the public transport, is the plan for a bicycle highway between Mannheim and Heidelberg. This highway will be one of the first ones for bicycles in Baden-Würrtemberg. In the core area of the Rhein-Neckar region it is a major challenge for the infrastructure to transport all commuters. The aim of the bicycle highway is to reduce the traffic intensity on the main transport routes. It is seen as an innovative traffic concept. Identical to this idea is the already existing bicycle highway between Arnhem and Nijmegen in the Netherlands. Aim of this highway was also to give a fast, healthy, alternative to connecting in the traffic jams.
