Here, I would say, one of the most important intersections in Mexico City. This is because it connects the two main business/comercial/financial avenues of the capital: Reforma and Insurgentes. At this point of the avenues the situation is as follows:
– Reforma has 3 outside car lanes plus 2 inside car lanes for each way. Next to each of the inside car lanes, there is a cycle path.
– Insurgentes has three car lanes for each way and in the middle a BRT system. Plus, due to the Covid-19, there is a new pop-up bike lane, therefore at this point you would see a BRT, two car lanes and the pop-up bikelane for each way.
The intersection is rather complicated and dangerous, there have been several incidents along the years, and although the Ministry of Mobility has worked on this intersection, I use it everyday to go to work and there is still room for improvement.2020-06-21 at 16:18 in reply to: Let’s explore and discuss local examples of cycling infrastructure #26200
On the example #26040 of Barcelona.
The first improvement that I can see is to delete the dashed line, I don´t think it works for anything, the lane is too narrow. For this I don’t think there would be any kind of opposition.
It looks like a primary road, so the second improvement would be to make the bicycle path double wide by deleting the space for parking cars on the other side. I went on google maps and I can notice that there is not that much of a parking demand, but I can imagine that to do this there would need to be a political work behind as well.2020-06-20 at 21:50 in reply to: Let’s explore and discuss local examples of cycling infrastructure #26144
This is a new cycle path in Mexico City. It is 1.5 km long along Álvaro Obregón avenue.2020-06-10 at 19:15 in reply to: M1L1 – What can YOUR expertise and background contribute to cycling? #25874
Hi! I am Camila from Mexico City.
I have a special interest in sustainable active mobility, public transport, and public space. I have studied and worked on these topics for a while now, and love to use the bike to commute in cities.
I wish to contribute to this group by exchanging opinions and knowledge on how thinking, designing, and making bicycle-friendly places, can help us to accelerate the pace of the necessary transformation of cities worldwide. The urge to transform them into livable, human, just and particularly sustainable places. Thinking together how can we participate in preventing the deterioration of our planet. I wish we can activate ourselves and jointly bring more solutions to the table to speed up the change we need.
