In terms of scale, the network density of the pedestrian & cycling system and right of way are to be fully guaranteed in order to prevent any decrease in existing scale and space given over to the pedestrian & cycling system. Both space for the pedestrian & cycling system, and for vehicles will expand simultaneously on new roads.

Travel mode objectives: In the travel mode mix, green transport such as walking, cycling, and public transport shall reach 80%, in which cycling shall not be less than 20% (16% of all traffic modes). At terminal of rail transport, cycling shall take up 15~20% of all traffic modes.

The main contents of the plan include:  “Metro public transport + pedestrian & cycling”, “vehicle use reduction” and “holistic street” strategies, along with district-specific and traffic network-specific measures, together with an increase in density of the pedestrian & cycling network. In the main city zones, 2,455km of non-vehicle lane network has been built with four different levels. For each level, the modality of separation and the width requirements have been specified.

Vehicle/non-vehicle physical segregation was recommended so that cyclists can enjoy a guaranteed safe section of 1,141 km, an increase of nearly 300% on the present.
