Brugge. Speed reducing measures for traffic in general

By News Editor / Updated: 29 Aug 2014
Since 1992, the whole inner city of Brugge has been converted into a zone 30" area. It consists of an area with a diameter of about 2 km, clearly limited by the medieval boundaries. The 30 km/h limit was imposed together with a series of measures to decrease car use and to promote bike and public transport. The introduction was accompanied by an important information campaign.>Many other cities introduced "zone 30", either in the inner city, either in small residential areas in the surrounding quarters or in the suburbs. The city of Brugge is the only city where the whole inner town has been converted.
