For decades Latvian city and transport planning practice
The Sustainable Development Strategy of Riga until 2030 accommodates the mobility principle in favor of cycling, walking or public transport in the core of the city rather than using one`s private car.
While the city center and its closest areas are most attractive for everyday cycling, commonly applied city planning practices in Latvia have suffered from car-centric design and suburban sprawl. In order to efficiently transform planning approaches towards livable public spaces and multi-modal street design, city planners are in high need for targeted expert advice to make major improvements in the cycling infrastructure design.
