      "Once again, the Nordic countries appear to be ahead of the game when it comes to sustainable mobility. The new coalition in charge of the Norwegian capital, Oslo, has just announced that it is to ban all cars from its city centre by 2019.

      This measure should cut the city’s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2020 compared to 1990 levels. To reinforce this project, the city of Oslo has set out a massive investment plan aimed at developing public transport and creating almost 40 miles of new cycle lanes.

      Denmark is not getting left behind either, since Copenhagen has launched an ambitious cycling development plan. By the end of 2015, the Danish capital hopes that at least 50% of its inhabitants’ commuter journeys will be made by bike."
