Bicycle routes with many entrances and exits or traffic lights create points where cyclists must stop. If the cycling routes are changed, the cyclists will be better able to keep cycling. For this reason, the fast cycling route is quicker and more convenient. This will convince people to cycle instead of drive by car. Zuid-Limburg Bereikbaar is working with the Province of Limburg to create a fast cycling route between Sittard and Maastricht. Ensuring there are sufficient numbers of high-quality bicycle-parking facilities is also part of creating better cycling infrastructure.
