Rostock starts creating a cycle highway network

The first cycle highway in Rostock has been inaugurated on the 8th of May 2020.

The first cycle highway (German: Radschnellweg) was ceremoniously handed over with great media attention. When the weather was fine, the Minister for Energy (federal state Mecklenburg – West Pomerania) Christian Pegel, Rostock’s Mayor Claus Ruhe Madsen, university rector Prof. Wolfgang Schareck and Rostock's Senator for Infrastructure Holger Matthäus inaugurated the one kilometre long section.

Approximately EUR 1 million flowed for the investment, of which 75% ERDF coming from the federal state budget for municipal cycle path construction. The 3 m wide premium cycle path is completely trouble-free, has dynamic LED lighting and an automatic counting point.
