Berlin 20 bicycle roads where cyclists enjoy priority over cars

In Treptow-Köpenick there is a single bicycle road – the meadow promenade in Köpenick. One year ago, the BVV requested to examine the establishment of a second road.

“A single bicycle road to 270,000 inhabitants – that is out of all proportion to the population,” says Sophie Lattke, spokeswoman for the Bicycle Friendly Treptow-Köpenick network. At least three more streets would be suitable.

On Sunday, 170 cyclists demonstrated in Adlershof for the establishment of other bicycle lanes, on which cyclists take precedence over the traffic. So far there are only 20 bicycle roads in Berlin. On the Gleimstraße and the Stargarder Straße in Prenzlauer Berg, the next is to be created, the test is running, but here too results cannot be expected.

Meanwhile, existing bicycle lanes are ignored by many motorists. They behave as on normal roads, although Tempo 30 is valid and only local traffic is allowed. Especially on the dedicated to cyclists Prinzregentenstraße in Wilmersdorf it comes more often conflicts. “There would have to be installed bollards,” says Klaus Wittke from Johannisthal, who uses the road several times a week. “This is a quick walk for the Bundesallee. The police do not control that. “
