In 2015, our members of NetPort Energy Cluster initiated and formed a working group that would work with a cycle project. The idea continued to expand at a workshop during a cluster meeting in 2016 and now we have several partners from Region Blekinge, Blekinge Traffic, Energkontor Sydost, Sweco, BTH, Netport Science Park, which continues. The Bicycle combating is a project where participants will register and then cycle as much as possible for a limited period, all data will be measured to be used for traffic planning, etc.
On June 5, we met representatives from Region Blekinge, BTH, Energkontor Sydost and NetPort Science Park to discuss how we can work on the bicycle combating. During the meeting, the different workgroups reported the work we had previously done about financing, environmental monitoring, technology and we shared new thoughts. The plan is to seek a 3-year project to encourage Blekinge residents to use more cycles and make everyone contribute to a more sustainable society in the future, thus reaching the goal of a fossil-free Sweden.
Region Blekinge has developed a new cycle strategy ” Regional cycle strategy for Blekinge 2018-2029 ”. Here you can read more:http://regionblekinge.se/a/uploads/dokument/Strategidokument/Cykelstrategi_A-webb.pdf
