Evolution per year of the new infrastructure created
The total amount of infrastructure is calculated in kilometers and includes segregated & painted cycle lanes as well as suggested cycle lanes. The Cycle Route Network consists of advisory routes for cyclists wishing to commute medium to long distances. They use calmer streets and less stressful routes. 2003 is an important year, as it saw the creation of a cycle lane on rue de la Loi. It was considered not realistic at the time to take away a car lane to make way for wider sidewalks and cycle lanes. It is now considered insufficient considering the volume of cyclists and pedestrians use the infrastructure.
