Challenge / Goal

With 152,485 inhabitants, Logroño is the capital of the province of La Rioja, situated in northern Spain. Active mobility modes (walking and biking) currently represent more than 60% of Logroño’s daily displacements. With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the local authorities grew concern about the lack of social distancing among its residents while transiting the streets. Due to the size and compactness of the city and the weight of public transport journeys, the most important asset for establishing safe interpersonal distances in mobility in Logroño was to facilitate active mobility by offer better public space conditions. The Open Streets project would, therefore, introduce measures that improve the comfort and safety conditions (road and health) of people walking and cycling.

Solutions

Logroño City Council implemented light reversible interventions to reduce the COVID-19 virus transmission, ensure a sustainable and safe mobility, and to provide accessible mobility to all. 

Interventions to street infrastructure:

  1. - Exclusive pedestrian strips
  2. - Dedicated cycle lanes with allowed counterflow
  3. - Shared pedestrian/cyclist lanes
  4. - Shared carriageways between bicycles and motor vehicles
  5. - Pedestrian priority carriageways (shared with vehicles in general) 

Interventions on pedestrian street usage:

  1. - Closure or restricted access of streets near local residential (schools, parks) or commercial areas, where there is usually no through traffic and few accesses to garages. 
  2. - Residential streets with pedestrian priority and 20 km/h speed limit
  3. - Streets with pedestrian priority and a 30 km/h speed limit
  4. - Widening of sidewalks to achieve a 3 m width
