Many squares located in the heart of the city center have become pedestrian areas following people’s desire.

The city used the same strategy for the square named “Place de la Reine” which will be totally pedestrian during the summer 2022. Many bike paths have been developed creating a real circuit through the city, while giving a safe and peaceful atmosphere.

In 5 years, the number of bike paths has increased to 30%. Indeed bicycle use has increased to 214%! Well done!
