Street #1 happens to be the location of Secret Republic world headquarters (i.e. my humble apartment). An even more radical contrast is the street shown intersecting Jagtvej, Nørrebrogade.
Nørrebrogade is the world’s busiest bicycle street, with about 36,000 cyclists daily. It was recently redesigned to feature two car-restricted sections, extensively widened cycle tracks, widened sidewalks, and bus boarding islands to eliminate conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists. The traffic lights are timed to the speed of cyclists–I often bike to work along Nørrebrogade without ever hitting a red light. Car traffic was reduced by 60%, bicycle traffic increased by 20%, and pedestrian traffic increased by 60% at the bridge connecting it to Copenhagen’s city center. The average noise level of the street has been cut in half, and traffic accidents have decreased by about 45%.
Other parts of the city are now demanding similar street transformations.
