The red and green have a lot to learn from Boris Johnson

Trafikborgarrådet, Daniel Helldén, MP, is portrayed in the american debate, at times, like some kind of tvåhjulad extremist. He is, of course, want to build out the bike lanes and remove parking spaces on the streets of Stockholm.

But the looks of it, all over the world appear to be Helldén, rather, as a mainstreampolitiker. The socialist, Anne Hidalgo, recently elected to the Paris's mayor, with a promise to take away 72 percent of all gatuparkeringar, and the building of bicycle paths along the city's streets.

Restricting the comparison to the corona of the outbreak of the first miljöpartisten indeed been left behind. Milan, Berlin, Budapest, and New York city are just a few of the towns and cities that, unlike in Stockholm, sweden, has been trying to do, to the reduction of car traffic in the virus permanently, by giving more space to cyclists and pedestrians. < / p>

he was several hundred miles supercykelvägar

and in the synthesis of the self, often in the saddle. It is the level of commitment he has maintained as prime minister.

the Increase in cycling is one of the cornerstones of the programme for the improvement of public health, which he announced earlier in the week. The high-level goal is to implement ”the most radical transformation of our towns and cities, then massbilismens coming.

the Boris Johnson of using his power to implement the changes, which can only be done at the national level. He would like to amend the road traffic act, in order to facilitate for cycling and walking, making bets on new toll motorways, it is also built bicycle paths and the new paths that are funded are really of high quality.

the State transport department is planning for a new cycle paths with dangerous intersections.

in Short, he is implementing a lot of it is that the government has failed to do. In the red-green government, has the transport department been allowed to continue to build cykelmöjligheterna along the many miles of open road. A number of initiatives for changes in the law to allow cycling against one-way street, as in most parts of Europe, it has not been made. At the same time has substantial investments in cycling been removed from the infrastructure plan. However, a lot of prestige and a great deal of money is spent on feltänkta subsidies for e-bikes.

All is not bleak. Stadsmiljöavtalen has been given government funding to local cykelsatsningar, and the riders have been given the legal right to use the roadway, even where bike lanes exist. However, it is at all necessary will depend on the current cycle lanes are dangerously designed, and poorly maintained. Some of the crisp initiative in order to come to grips with the government's direction is lacking. On the contrary, the plan of the state transport department for the new bike trails with a life-threatening intersections.

The red-green government could learn a lot from Boris Johnson.
