“As announced, marking the bicycle route from Trstenik Bay to the Tourist Palace, about four kilometers long, has begun. We would like to remind you that the consents of the Ministry of the Interior and Hrvatske ceste have been obtained previously, and the traffic signs have been made according to the detailed design. Given the spatial conditions and the previous spatial planning documentation that did not provide for the construction of this type of communal infrastructure, the arrangement of traffic signals will contribute to increasing the safety of bicycle traffic in this part of the city,” said the City of Split on its Facebook page Tuesday.
The works are co-financed by the European Union within the strategic project “Choose a bicycle!” – “URBAN MOBILITY – Development of public bicycle system in the Urban Agglomeration of Split (UAS)”, implemented by the Service for International and EU projects with funds provided through the ITU mechanism of the Urban Agglomeration Split. In addition to the mentioned cycling route, as part of this project, the City of Split will prepare an analytical basis – a study of the development potential of bicycle roads for the establishment of an integrated system of bicycle roads, which will achieve one of the prerequisites for the development of bicycle roads in Split and Split.
Recall, the total value of the project “Choose a bike!” amounts to HRK 13,609,435.83, with HRK 10,893,396.68 in grants. In addition to the aforementioned activities within this integrated project, the City of Split and 7 partners – cities and municipalities from the Urban Agglomeration of Split (Solin, Trogir, Kaštela, Podstrana, Klis, Dugopolje, and Dicmo), will receive 41 new stations with a mixed contingent with a total 242 bicycles and a bicycle road will be established in Trogir (in the area of Brig-Lokvica). The project implementation period is from March 6, 2020, to July 6, 2022.
