EFLA and Kópavogur take a ride


EFLA consulting engineers recently assisted the town of Kópavogur in increasing cycling as a way of transport, to follow up on recently approved environmental policy of Kópavogur.


In recent years Kópavogur has gradually worked towards improving cycling routes as well as routes for pedestrians. Now Kópavogur wants to take it a step further with an effective cycling plan. The plan will describe the current situation, establish measurable goals in accordance with Kópavogur's policies as well as draw up a construction plan.


One of the first parts of this project is to gather information on current traffic and cyclists concerns on that matter. A count was performed in 10 different places and a survey conducted among the cyclists. The results of the survey will most likely be presented at the Transportation Week, September 16.-22. Kópavogur plans to make the counting and the survey an annual event.
