This week, the works to expand the cycling network in the capital of São Paulo begin. There will be another 48 kilometers (km) of bike lanes, the first being about 7 km long, on República do Líbano and Indianópolis avenues, and on Rua Sena Madureira, in the south of the city. The structures of Nossa Senhora do Sabará and Alberto de Zagottis will be connected to the bike path of Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM), at the height of the Jurubatuba station. The one on Radial Leste, 3 km long, connects the Caminho Verde bike path to the city center structures.
The work will be carried out by the company Habitem Incorporação e Construção, with which the city hall has signed a contract. The implementation of the new connections will cost R$ 17 million. According to the Municipal Department of Mobility and Traffic and the Companhia de Engenharia Tráfego, the roads that will receive the new bike lanes were presented and discussed with society, through workshops and public hearings.
