In London we have a new dramatic bridge in the pipeline, but cyclists won’t be allowed on it. In the bike nirvana that is Copenhagen, they have an even more jaw-dropping bridge proposition in the pipeline (pictured above) and its prime function is as a bicycle bridge.
As Mikael Colville-Andersen, who runs the urban bike blog Copenhagenize, says:
“In Copenhagen, they’re called bicycle bridges, but we assume that there will also be pedestrian access – and there always is. But in the City of Cyclists, our perception is that a bridge ain’t functional if it isn’t for bicycles.”
