THE tool for improved cycling infrastructure!
When broken glass or tree roots leave you swerving, poor lighting makes cycling at night unsafe or cycle routes suddenly end, RADar! can help. Citizens report issues by dropping pins directly on a digital map so that their municipality knows exactly where it needs to take action. And municipalities are able to publicly inform cyclists about improvements.
Why should municipalities offer RADar!?
1. Involve citizens
Invite cyclists to actively suggest improvements to the infrastructure – they know exactly where these are needed.
2. Improve cycling infrastructure
Use RADar! in addition to existing measures to draw on cyclists’ experience.
3. Prioritise reports
Process reports according to their urgency. Cyclists can confirm or comment on reports already submitted.
4. Encourage an exchange
Municipalities can view and process all reports and contact the person who submitted the report to request further information or thank them.
5. Tap into synergies
CITY CYCLING municipalities can use RADar! as a free planning and citizen participation tool during their local campaign. Allowing the promotion of cycling to be combined with improving the cycling infrastructure.
6. Long-term planning
Coordinators can access the report management interface for one or three years, depending on the option booked. Use the tool as an information portal for implemented and planned measures.
RADar! greatly simplifies the communication with citizens for our administration. We can immediately see on the map where we need to make improvements, without having to check all of the routes ourselves regularly.
As active cyclists, we’re aware of issues and shortcomings in our local cycling network. With more than 400 reports submitted via RADar!, there were still some that were new to us though. In addition to praise and criticism, we were additionally able to respond to citizens’ questions about specific points.
With the RADar! platform, local citizens can easily report issues and shortcomings in the cycling network. At the same time, us officials from the rural district can comment directly on these or inform cyclists when an issue has been resolved.
