Vitoria-Gasteiz' initiative to calm traffic involves 45 streets and aims to make it easier for cyclists and cars to share the road safely.

The City Council of Vitoria-Gasteiz has identified a real problem where cyclists, pedestrians and cars interact. Mayor Javier Maroto announced that the City Council will apply a package of measures to calm traffic on some streets with the aim that cyclists can use these roads safely. The city's Sustainable Mobility Plan defines which streets are affected by the implementation of measures to avoid the vehicle traffic. The action promises to be remarkable as the City Council plans to intervene in 45 streets within 17 superblocks surrounding the central superblock in the historic centre. Reforms will include painting, signage and placement of a coloured, embossed asphalt, which warns drivers that they are entering a traffic-calmed area. Some of the streets that will benefit from the measures are: Fueros, Olaguíbel, Postas, Pío XII, Jesús Guridi, Canciller Ayala, Juan XIII, Isaac Albéniz, Francia, Libertad, Portal de Arriaga, Cercas Bajas, Beato Tomás de Zumárraga, Eulogio Serdán, Koldo Mitxelena, Bizenta Mogel o Madre Vedruna. The budget for this initiative amounts to € 300,000, 30 percent of which will be funded by the CIVITAS Initiative.
