Project description

This valorisation activity concerns the further dissemination of the “Fietstrack”, a platform - currently as an advanced prototype - with which bicycle routes can be inventoried and assessed for bicycle safety. Through an exchange moment with the City of Ghent, Ghent citizens, and traffic organisations, the added value of Fietstrack will be demonstrated in an interactive and participatory way. The experiences gained from this activity will be communicated to other Flemish municipalities, encouraging them to use the Fietstrack and to translate it into policy for a more bicycle-safe Flanders.
