Kopenhagens Strategie zur Fahrradstadt 2025. Wirksam?

Kopenhagen denkt weit voraus, zumindestens im gekonnten City-Marketing und im Radverkehr! Ergänzt sich ja bestens. Die Rad-Strategie 2012-2015 gibts hier zum download und ist jedenfalls einen genauen Blick wert, denn immerhin gibt CPH den Tretrhythmus vor in punkto Radverkehrsförderung. Daher die wichtigtsen Textpassagen unten und daraus drei Kerninhalte:
a) eine Menge an wunderbaren Dingen angekündigt  (more green waves, more parking, cycle-bridges!)
b) ebenso viel gekonntes Green-Marketing-Sprech
c) aber erstaunlicherweise ist Kopenhagens Antwort auf überfüllte Radwege “wider bike lanes” und nicht “cycle-only-streets”.

Wie sollte mehr Raum fürs Rad erreicht werden, und wie noch breitere Radwege (teils >4m schon jetzt!), ohne die Autos von den Straßen zu bekommen oder Radverkehr in beruhigten Motor-Verkehr einzugliedern (und ihn also sanft zu übernehmen)?

ZITATE…

The cycle tracks of Copenhagen are already under pressure
during rush hour. It is necessary to give more space to cyclists
on the main arteries… In some places the existing cycle
tracks will be widened, in other places alternative routes
will be necessary to move some of the bicycle traffic away
from the congested routes.

In order to ensure the shortest possible travel time from
A to B, the existing cycling network must be further
developed, with extra focus on PLUSnet and establishing
short cuts. Redesigns like new cycle tracks, traffic
calming and speed bumps will contribute to improving
the travel times for cyclists…

There are many streets in Copenhagen where cyclists must use a
detour because of one-way streets. In 2025, most one-way streets
for cyclists have been eliminated…

In the City of Cyclists in 2025, more intersections are equipped
with Green Waves for cyclists…

…pulling back the stop lines for cars
at intersections, so that cyclists are in front of the cars and have
the advantage when the light turns green.

    Making CPH more permeable to bikes and less convenient for cars. This promotes cycling at the expense of car usage. It is a good strategy if you ask me. Surely they will continue to reallocate space from cars to bikes increasing the capacity of their cycle infrastructure.

    When you question “Radwege” vs “Radstraßen” what type of roads are you talking about? I do not know CPH well but they seam to concentrate cycling on to their main through routes to facilitate maximum rush hour commuter capacity and mobility. This means reallocating space from cars (parking and driving lanes) to cycle paths which have a higher capacity than congested car lanes. These main through roads are not suitable for “Radstraßen”. “Radstraßen” would be a solution for Access road routes not main road routes.
