Pedestrian, Cycling and Road Spaces, Amsterdam, Netherlands
The Netherlands represents one of the most innovative and committed country for alternative forms of urban transportation. These priorities are well represented in the allocation of space along right of ways devoted to urban circulation. The above photo depicts a corridor of circulation located just at the outskirts of Amsterdam's central area. The pedestrian and cycling spaces occupy as much space as the road and are entirely separated by a linear green space.
