Hamburg is becoming a car free city

Hamburg is on its way of being a greener, healthier city by becoming a car free city in about 20 years time. The project called Grunes Netz will make this city a safer city for the cyclists and pedestrian by creating more pedestrian routes, paths and green areas on an area that coves about 40% of the city.

As the Guardian, states the project will not only help in reducing pollution but will also encourage people to leave their cars at home, as  Angelica Fritsch, the city spokesperson added “It will offer people opportunities to hike, swim, do water sports, enjoy picnics and restaurants, experience calm and watch nature and wildlife right in the city. That reduces the need to take the car for weekend outings outside the city.”
