Odenseification

The City of Odense, Denmark has submitted a new master plan that guides development to make the city carbon-neutral by 2025.

"The aim is to change habits through a network of bike trails, pedestrian passages and alternative transportation options that offer viable, sustainable alternatives to driving. Car traffic in the city centre will be reduced significantly by closing the busy Thomas B. Thriges Gade and converting the whole area into a coherent urban space. By shifting traffic from cars onto streets, alleys and pathways, the activity and, as a consequence, the diversity of social life in the area is increased. And by turning motorists into cyclists and pedestrians, you reap the double rewards of a greener environment and healthier citizens. In this way The Plan for Traffic and Mobility connects with municipal policies for both culture and health."
