a) what incremental improvement would you recommend for this particular example:
The bike lane is strongly connected with safer infrastructure. With heavy vehicles on the streets, lane as wide as 1.5 m would be advisable for expansion. Or the effective use of walkways on the roadside can be used for slow cycling and pedestrian movements. It is already separated from the existing road that could work just fine with little signage, and warning instructions for safety.
b) what kind of political and bureaucratic opposition this improvement would likely encounter:
– Obviously the street is not fit to accommodate any sort of parking facilities
– It will create an unsafe environment for pedestrians as a cyclist would use the same space as them
– Situations can become unease during maintenance on sides of streets as seen in the image as well
