Last updated: 5 November 2017
To promote cycling the federal government adopted a National Cycling Plan, designed to initiate new strategies for and improvements to the promotion of cycling up to 2012. In addition the federal government has also made a financial commitment to cycling: in 2008 the government invested about €100m in the construction and maintenance of cycle paths on trunk roads, in the implementation of the National Cycling Plan, and in cycling safety work. Moreover, there are many packages of measures and individual projects initiated by cities and municipalities at local level which are designed to promote cycling further.
