Abstract

Global trends such as urbanization, urban sprawl, traffic congestion,transport-related pollutions, safety and security issues, and climate change, make it necessary to adapt and improve the entire urban transport system. Therefore, it has become obvious that one of the appropriate ways of dealing with mentioned urban issues is the shift from automobile trips to other transportation forms called active transport, (walking and cycling). Cycling is a mode of transport that has had an important role in the "Mobilise Your City" concept, focused on offering an attractive and complementary alternative to individual motorized transport. The value of such an approach, depends, among other things, on the sustainable urban infrastructure. Encouraging more people to cycle is one of the main goals of the "Skopje Velo-city 2017" project. Additionally, the improvement of the cycling infrastructure is a vital part of strategies, pathways, and measures directed towards switching to more sustainable transport modes.
