The Councilor for Sustainable Mobility, Giuseppe Grezzi, has announced the great project that will be carried out throughout 2018 - the first motorway for bicycles in Spain. The project will create new municipal tax on human-powered vehicles, the obligation to register all bicycles, a compulsory insurance and a new specific card for exclusive points for bicycles.  

The project for the construction of the highway, with a budget close to 240 million euros, will have a total of 79 kilometers with 4 cycle lanes, 2 for each direction, which will travel through the city of Valencia. There will be also specialized service stations with necessary supplies and information panels. The project is a step further in the sustainable transport policy in favor of the 2023 project: Valencia, the city with the cleanest air in Spain.
