Cycle Superhighway Gratkorn-Gratwein-Graz

 

April 2017

In the course of the building of the district heating supply line from Gratkorn to Graz, the Federal State of Styria currently discusses the possibility of a cycle superhighway alongside this supply line. As it is the first project of its kind in Styria, it can be seen how difficult it is to define the quality parameters of such new infrastructure. Which quality standards this cycle superhighway has to fulfil and where there are interactions with existing bicycle routes as well as its financial feasibility are being answered with planning experts, engineers and legal professionals by using a cost-benefit analysis.
