Pedestrians and Cyclists
Finland’s Best City Centre for Walking and Cycling
We want to transfer the city centre of Turku to Finland’s best for cyclists and pedestrians. When the cars will be redirected underground, they will make space to a modern and convenient city centre for the people. There will be safe and continuous bicycle roads when the cars will be redirected further away from the Market Square. In addition, there will be plenty of space reserved for the parking of the bicycles.
The most important changes to the current situation include transferring the Street Yliopistonkatu to a walking street around the Market Square and preventing the driving of motor vehicles between the Streets Maariankatu and Eerikinkatu except for the taxis and service cars. The speed limits in the city centre of Turku will be reduced because more emphasis will be placed on pedestrians and cyclists.
