We gradually completely renovated the city centre and redesigned it into a pedestrian area with a size of more than 10 ha. One of the most visible measures for introducing a high-quality public space in the city centre is the rearrangement of a part of the main traffic axis - Slovenska cesta - into an area dedicated to pedestrians, cyclists and city bus users (shared space). By building or renovating 13 bridges over the Ljubljanica, we linked the embankments and shortened the distances.
The City of Ljubljana maintains and renovates 1,626 streets and roads. We are continuously improving and expanding the cycling infrastructure especially when renovating roads or when constructing new roads. Every year, we introduce many cyclist-friendly innovations, for example the so-called sharrow - a traffic lane for mixed traffic, bike boxes that allow cyclists to move in front of motor vehicles at intersections, cycling counters, right-of-way for cyclists in intersections, and a regular removal of the so-called "black cycling spots”.
The P+R system (P+R stands for park and ride) is a combination of private and public transportation, which allows users to reach the main points on the city outskirts or the radial roads with their cars and continue their journey to the city by bus or a bicycle from the BicikeLJ bike-sharing system. The bicycle is accesible by a 7-day ticket or an annual subscription. By paying a parking fee of 1.20 euros, the P+R system users are entitled to two bus rides until 11:59 pm of the same day. This way, the number of cars in the city centre is reduced. In Ljubljana, there are five P+R facilities that operate within the P+R system.
Since the bicycle parks caused such widespread thrill, we have decided to keep turning some degraded areas into pump tracks. At the intersection of the streets Linhartova and Topnika cesta, we have arranged the new bicycle park KoloPark Bežigrad within the European Mobility week 2017. Like KoloPark ika it also offers free-of-charge fun and practice with all kinds of self-propelled vehicles, from bikes, kick scooters, skateboards, inline skates, to roller skates and foot-propelled bikes.
The aim of thematic cycling paths is to establish attractive cycling links between various parts of Ljubljana along less busy streets for daily commutes by bicycle. Since 2014, we have marked four thematic cycling paths: Waterside path (12km), Plečnik's path (14km), Forest path (7km), and the path around Ljubljana along the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship (32km).
