Facilitating cycling in a car centric borough

Who expects to find car centric spatial planning in Amsterdam? We assure you that it is there and Amsterdam Nieuw West is one of the boroughs where we checked this out with several groups of visitors. The area consists of older villages, build up between newer residential neighbourhoods that have been built after 1950. The one-day study tour combined a presentation by borough staff with a cycle tour in the area. The borough is well equipped with separated bicycle infrastructure for utility cycling and also features nice recreational ‘Green Axes’.
