After two intensive years of consultations and workshops, the Global Future Cities Programme's (GFCP) Ankara Bicycle Master Plan and Pilot Implementation Project is approved for implementation. The UK FCDO funded intervention aimed to integrate a bicycle transportation system within the existing mobility network of Ankara, addressed systemic improvements between bicycle-pedestrian and bicycle-motor vehicle interaction, the feasibility of park and ride systems integration and the design of a bicycle road network. The pilot project will develop the first stage for implementing the Bicycle Master Plan in a specific area of the city. The developed strategy includes subsequent phases to extend the network from the pilot to a larger area and to city-wide in the mid and long term. Capacity building of stakeholders ensured the sustainability and ownership of the final outcome by citizens and institutions.
