In a short time the capital of Uzbekistan will have bicycle lanes. Uzbekistan Today interviewed the spokesman for the Main Directorate of Traffic Safety.
According to the source, traffic police sent a proposal to establish bicycle lanes to all district administrations. He also noted that all the necessary funds for the project will be allocated.
"Cyclists along with pedestrians and car drivers are also road users, which is why, we came up with this proposal. Now Khokimiyats together with design institutes are studying the experience of developed countries in this direction," he said.
First of all, this practice will be introduced in the capital, and then in the other major cities of the country. Specific dates for the emergence of bicycle lanes is not yet known.
