Over 150km of cycle paths to be implemented in Slovakia

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com

More than 150km of cycle paths will be implemented in Slovakia to provide commuters with a cleaner alternative to car journeys. The move follows a call from the agriculture and rural development ministry to increase capacity for non-motorised transport.

The ministry has now approved 63 cycle projects worth approximately €30.7m, says NewsNow.

Gabriela Matecna, agriculture and rural development minister, says €81.8m has now been allocated for non-motorised transport schemes.

The ministry has received 87 cycle project requests with a total volume of €30.68m across a length of 155km, adds Matecna.

Approved projects include a cycle park next to a railway station in the city of Trnava and a bike-sharing system in the city of Kosice.

Municipalities, self-governing regions, non-government organisations and entities providing regular public passenger transport can submit their requests.

Funding is available for projects involving the modernisation and construction of infrastructure for non-motorised transport and initiatives promoting cycling.
