Genk. Mixed traffic in areas with traffic calming

By News Editor / Updated: 29 Aug 2014
Mixed traffic in the city centre and other areas with traffic calming (city of Genk) A traffic circulation scheme will reduce the car traffic in the city centre in the short run, within an inner circle road. The aim will be a maximum speed of 30 km (but not compulsory) by road reconstruction. Cars and cyclists will be mixed in all streets. Other districts are or will be reconstructed as zone 30" areas, in which mixed traffic of cars and cyclists is considered to be the best solution as well.>About 70% of the districts - within the main road network - are already converted into "zone 30". This policy is rather common in Belgium: in areas with maximum speeds lower or equal to 30 km/h, mixed traffic is the safest solution.
