Designing bicycle infrastructure in Nanjing, China
China faces a very serious environmental situation as a result of severe environmental pollution in the country. Smog in eastern and northern China is a wake-up call for actions to be taken to improve the ecological environment. As a student in landscape architecture, my practicum topic focuses on a design that can reduce the problem of air pollution in China. A bicycle infrastructure design in Nanjing is proposed to encourage people to ride instead of drive. By creating a safe, functional, efficient, recreational and attractive bicycle system, more people will love cycling and realize the importance of “green travel”. At the same time, I would like to try to improve Chinese people’s awareness of environmental protection through a well-designed bicycle infrastructure.
