The Netherlands represents one of the most innovative and committed countries for alternative forms of urban transportation. These priorities are well represented in the allocation of space along the right of ways devoted to urban circulation. The above photo depicts a corridor of circulation located just on the outskirts of Amsterdam’s central area. The pedestrian and cycling spaces occupy as much space as the road and are entirely separated by a linear green space.
