Funding boost to improve cycling in Wallonia

19:50 12/11/2017

The Walloon government has voted to make available €5.46 million in subsidies to develop cycling infrastucture across the region.

Some 62 towns and villages will each receive a maximum of €100,000, to cover no more than 75% of the cost of each proposed project.

Regional mobility minister Carlo Di Antonio said the funding would allow the municipalities to develop new cycle paths and facilities, or to improve the safety of existing bike infrastructure.

The aim is to further strengthen the accessibility of the RAVeL cycle network by creating new bike path connections and filling in missing links between residential areas and local business centres.
