Changes in Prague bicycle transport: The municipality will re-mark some routes. They will be part of parent routes
The change does not mean that the city would cancel or change the route of some cycle routes or cycle paths. Some cycle routes are only shortened along the same route and in the given section mark the mark of the superior route. This will be an addition to the superior cycle routes. “Marking, addition of superior cycling routes it will help ensure that there is ongoing territorial provision and coordination of emerging projects,” the document says.
In practice, this will mean that, for example, the A314 route leading from Spojavojna will become part of the superior A4 route. This also applies to the A311 route from Jankovcova to Povltavská or for the A271 from Most Barikadníků to Davídkova. The designation of some routes is shortened by the part overlapping with the superior route.
In the streets of the metropolis, there are also so-called backbone routes designated A10 to A49. Their system will remain without major changes, only in some sections where they run parallel to the superior route, either they will overlap or completely replace the backbone cycle routes of the superior roads. Other cycling routes marked A100 to A599 will remain practically unchanged. The numbers for other cycle routes are not all used.
There are over 515 kilometers of marked routes in Prague, of which roughly two hundred lead outside of traffic with cars. On streets with car traffic, about 84 kilometers are marked for cyclists. The municipality gives tens of millions of crowns to cycle transport every year.
