The market town council of Markt Schwaben is in favor of promoting cycling and compact and balanced local development.

Markt Schwaben

- The municipality of Markt Schwaben wants to promote cycling significantly and sustainably - especially with regard to the inner-city area.

The municipality is also in favor of supporting local mobility through compact and balanced local development, for example through the supply of high-performance retail and service companies close to home and the centre.

There was now a decision in the market town council.

The municipality intends to develop a clear and stringent cycling concept and to develop it continuously, taking into account all other modes of transport and including them as "synergetically" as possible.

Stringent bike concept

Strengthening the partnership between all road users should be kept in mind.

One goal: road safety is to be improved “for and through cycling”.

The activities to promote cycling should also be coordinated on an inter-communal basis, particularly with regard to supplementing and expanding supra-local routes.

According to the municipal council, sustainable funding is only possible if other partners are involved in the project, such as the police, the ADFC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club) and the state building authority.

According to the decision of the plenary session, the First Mayor should be responsible for ensuring that all of this is brought together optimally.

involve partners

It was said last Thursday in the plenary session in the market town that the bicycle is a fast, inexpensive, space-saving, environmentally friendly means of transport that can be used by almost all groups of the population, which can also make a major contribution to solving the problem areas of environmental pollution, fine dust pollution and noise .

For this reason, the bicycle as a means of transport is of fundamental importance in urban and traffic planning.

The council had already decided in December 2019 that membership in the working group of bicycle-friendly municipalities in Bavaria should be applied for for environmental, climate and transport reasons.

The importance of cycling was also underlined by the appointment of a bicycle officer and the application to become a bicycle-friendly municipality.

Bike-friendly community

The offer for cyclists on site is said to be adapted to the increased requirements in the next few years and, if possible, further measures of the cycling concept currently being developed by the Pro Fahrrad interest group are to be implemented.

With the decision of principle that has now been taken by the market town council, the intention to promote cycling is to be documented.

The 16:4 decision on Thursday therefore forms the backbone of the promotion of cycling in the municipality and the possibility of deriving the corresponding transport policy measures from it.
