Hamburg and its city officials presented a plan to make the city car-free by 2034. The plan is to build a network that will emphasize bikes and public transport as method of transportation. The network will also provide breeding ground for pedestrians.
The plan, called the “Green Network”, will cover 40% of the area of the city, connecting parks, gardens, cemeteries, recreational areas and playgrounds with green paths.
The ambitious plan will happen in the next 20 years. However, even now, as things stand, half of the city is covered by green and public open spaces. At the moment, there are two green rings in the city, surrounding the play areas and parks, and dividing them from the inner city.
