The Hague Cycling Plan; state of the art in cycling planning
The previous programme expired in 2014 and will continue into this Bike 2015-2018. The starting point for this new multi-annual Bicycle is the Coalition Agreement 2014-2018: “Trusting in The Hague's Strength”. Under the heading “More room for the bicycle”, the following is stated: "Safe, recognisable and comfortable cycling facilities are the basis for further growth in bicycle use. There is an ambitious programme for the expansion and improvement of bicycle facilities, a number of star routes will be expanded this period, we will continue with the asphalting of bicycle paths and create more (free) parking facilities at stations in the centre and at the beach. Abandoned bicycles are addressed throughout the city and we are expanding the number of neighbourhood bike parking facilities and routes in areas such as the Stationsbuurt and Schilderswijk." These ambitions along with the focal points for the bicycle policy of The Hague Mobility Policy and the continuation of the bicycle policy of recent years are detailed in this new Cycling Programme 2015-2018.
