A community-led proposal envisions converting the abandoned space beneath Berlin’s elevated U1 subway line into a “grand boulevard for bike traffic” that would stretch almost 6 miles throughout the city. The proposal, Radbahn Berlin, is led by a team of local specialists and community leaders who would like to put the forgotten area to use as a covered bike path lined with vibrant green spaces, bike service stations, and recreational areas for cafes and food trucks.
Although still in the early stages, the Radbahn vision is supported by many – especially those who think the city is lacking in bike infrastructure. The proposed cycle path would run almost 6 miles underneath the elevated rail line, which stretches along one of Berlin’s main roads connecting three districts and various neighborhoods. Currently, the space beneath the rail line is completely idle, with the exception of a few illegally parked cars.
