The masterplan Radoffensive Graz 2030 commissioned by the Land Steiermark and the city of Graz is more than just a handbook for cycling planning. On the one hand, it is a summary of an ongoing process, and on the other hand, it formulates an integral image of urban mobility for the future. Clear values, concise planning principles, a design concept and a bundled catalogue of measures are the product of multidisciplinary cooperation. This master plan supports the public authorities (departments of the City of Graz and the Province of Styria) and accompanying expert planners in the implementation of the €100 million project Cycle Offensive 2030. Based on the cycle network study of the Styrian core conurbation, existing plans are upgraded and new plans are initiated. The associated master plan sets new standards for a sustainable and intensive use of the bi- cycle. Investments in cycling are furthermore activated as a means of improving the city as a whole.
The masterplan includes a bicycle guidance system for recreational and functional cycling within the city and the entire region of the Land Steiermark. The focus is put on the road surface as the ‘user interface’: colour and markings are used as the primary design elements. Signage and digital applications are additional, secondary elements. The aim is an intuitive to use, self-explaining guidance system for all bicycle users.
Artgineering established the masterplan, the physical guidance system and currently accompanies the city and region on several pilot projects about bicycle streets and (transport-)bike parking. Stefan Bendiks was appointed the Masterplanner of the Radoffensive 2030.
