This article examines the issue of cycling in Russian cities on the example of the city of Kazan. The authors come to the conclusion that the existing bicycle zones in Kazan aren’t connected to each other and don’t intersect complex transport hubs with high traffic intensity, therefore, cycling around the city isn’t safe and comfortable. As a solution to this problem, the idea of a new combined overpass, combining a pedestrian and roadway for cyclists, is presented. In addition, it’s proposed to develop the street and road network of the city of Kazan, through the construction of new bicycle paths. The combined overpass will allow for a more rational redirection of the city's traffic flows, ensure the safety of high-speed traffic and create comfortable conditions for the city's population. The construction of a bicycle path will reduce the total traffic load on the city's roads, and ensure safe movement for citizens in the central part of the city. Thus, the need to introduce and develop bicycling in our city, which entails planning not only bicycle paths, but also the construction of other transport infrastructure facilities for comfortable crossing of transport hubs with high traffic intensity by cyclists, seems obvious.
Key words: Cycling / cycling culture / road network / combined overpass / cycle path / footpath / transport infrastructure / scheduling / cost estimate
