Veloroute 2 – Tornquiststraße

The urban infrastructure in Hamburg is being continuously extended using so-called velo routes as a part of a high-speed cycleway network. This is intended to make cycling safer and more attractive. Veloroute 2 connects the city – Eimsbüttel – Stellingen – Eidelstedt together over a length of 11 km.

During upgrading and replanning of the route, several variations were developed and discussed with public involvement. After extensive polls a 30 km/h zone and a cycleway were implemented. The road construction work included, amongst other things, renovation of the historic road surface (small cobblestones and asphalt) and the widening of a partially-existing two-lane cycleway to a width of 4 m. The complete planning area was constructed to be barrier-free and fitted out with tactile signing.

It was also possible to build a roundabout with barrier-free construction of pedestrian crossings to optimise traffic flow.
