The Netherlands pledges 1.1 billion euros to cycling infrastructure

You would think that the Dutch had already covered their entire country with cycle paths, but no, there is more to do. That’s why this week the central government announced an investment of €780 million in cycling infrastructure.

In combination with existing municipal and provincial commitments, this brings the total investment in 2030 to 1.1 billion euros. This country has cycling in its blood.

On a mission to reduce car journeys, the government is looking for transportation alternatives to get people to leave their cars at home – or not buy one at all.

Meaningful last mile solutions
