Konya Bicycle Transportation Master Plan

Konya Transportation Master Plan (KONUAP 2030) was prepared for the city of Konya, where the principles of eliminating disruptions in urban transportation, making urban transportation more efficient and sustainable, conducting environmentally sensitive practices, increasing energy efficiency and reducing carbon footprint are also observed.

KONUAP (2030), in which the strategic framework for Konya "Non-Motorized Transport" planning was created, was completed in 2014. In the continuation of the master plan, especially the studies for implementing bicycle transportation plan decisions were carried out with Konya Bicycle Transport Master Plan study.

With the increase of urbanization and population densities, solutions for sustainable modes of transportation have increased their applications and planning worldwide. Action plans focused on urban mobility, public transportation, parking lot management, logistics movement management, bicycle transportation are planned and implemented under the title of sustainable transportation. Examples of cities that form successful strategies among the cities of the world on bicycle transportation and actively use the use of bicycles are examined.

When the length of bicycle transportation network per 1000 people is evaluated, it is seen that Melbourne central region has a higher value with 0,89 km compared to other cities. On the other hand, Barcelona is the last among the cities compared in terms of defined bicycle road network. When the city of Konya is examined, it is determined that it has a 320 km bicycle network and the rate of bicycle network per person is 0.24 km.

The dissemination and development of bicycles in the city is directly related to the analysis of urban transport habits. For this purpose, surveys carried out throughout the city are accepted as an important criterion in questioning the transportation opportunities and the reasons for being preferred.

Suggestion The physical condition of the road and the land use decisions were taken into account in determining the direction of the bicycle network. Most of the network is planned as one lane and one way on both sides of the road. The vehicle and pedestrian shared bike lane has a ratio of approximately 5.2% in the network.

In the current situation, problems such as insufficient bicycle paths, what the road components required for safe driving cover, which routes should be reserved for bicycles, at which points the parking space is needed, the population growth rate and the rate of bicycle use change, the habits and usage preferences of bicycle users are not known. has been identified. Therefore, by solving these problems, it is aimed to provide users with comfortable and safe access.

When the current status of the vehicle road through which the bicycle network passes and the zoning plan decisions are examined, it is aimed to provide convenient access to the users by positioning the bicycle network on both sides of the road, in cases where the service units, public institutions, residential uses are located on both sides of the road. The physical condition of the road is another important criterion. The city center and its immediate surroundings, residential areas located in the east and west of Istanbul Street and the bicycle network in the bus terminal area are proposed on both sides of the road.
