Safer Infrastructure for Cyclists and Pedestrians in Mashhad City

20th Anniversary, 2022

In Mashhad city Iran pedestrians account for 51% of all crash fatalities. Based on our survey safety is among highest concerns for current and potential cyclists. Since 2019 Mashhad Municipality has started activities to provide safer infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians. Infrastructure enhancement, improved safety of 125 intersections and 112km of new dedicated cycle lanes helped more citizens to use this clean mode of transport.

The project delivered jointly between Mashhad Municipality and Road Safety Pioneers led to remarkable reductions in drivers violations, pedestrian injuries, and increased active cycling.
