Bicycle paths within the Regional Operational Programme
Szczecin is to have two new bicycle paths. The city will allocate almost PLN 18.5 million to their construction. Half of this amount will be acquired from the European Union.
Today, on 28 September 2010, Aleksander Buwelski, Deputy Mayor of Szczecin, and Władysław Husejko, the Marshal of the Westpomeranian Voivodeship, concluded a grant agreement for two bicycle paths - a path running from ul. Panieńska through Trasa Zamkowa (the Castle Route) to Most Cłowy (Customs Bridge) and a bicycle path along the Płonia River in Szczecin Dąbie.
The paths will be co-financed within the Regional Operational Programme of the Westpomeranian Voivodeship.
- The construction of a bicycle path from the left bank to Puszcza Bukowa (the Beech Forest) to Jezioro Szmaragdowe (Emerald Lake) in Szczecin – a section from ul. Panieńska through Trasa Zamkowa (the Castle Route) to Most Cłowy (Customs Bridge)”
The objective of the project is to connect the right-bank and left-bank parts of Szczecin through bicycle paths and to increase the city’s tourist attractiveness by adjusting the infrastructure of bicycle paths to the users’ requirements.
- “The construction of a bicycle path along the Płonia River in Szczecin Dąbie”
The bicycle path includes two sections, the first of which runs in the urbanised area of the Old Town, the second one in the recreational part of the city. The bicycle path, to be constructed as a result of the project’s implementation, is a part of a recreational path planned to be constructed in the future connecting the beaches at Dąbie lake with forest areas on the other side of the city.
The bicycle path and pavements will be illuminated.
