Planning, construction and maintenance

The planning of cycling in Helsinki is carried out by the Urban Environment Division. 

The main focus in the cycling route development over the next few years will be on the inner city in accordance with new planning principles. Cycling is no longer associated with walking but more clearly with vehicular traffic. For example, on the main cycling routes cyclists will not be directed to mingle with pedestrians on pedestrian streets and ways. Cycling on streets will be made increasingly easy with one-way bikeways and bike lanes and new cycling arrangements at junctions.

The City Council allocates an annual budget for cycling route construction.
