Participation 2014

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
"Forbausende byfest" hvor en gate med gateparkering og smale fortau stenges for biltrafikk og fylles med ulike aktiviteter, boder og kulturelle innslag. I tillegg anlegges det sykkelfelt i Hans Nielsen Hauges gate og Follogata på bekostning av gateparkering. Dette gir sykkelfelt til en ungdomsskole, en videregående skole, idrettshall og svømmehall.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
Glengsgata fra Kirkegata til Lilletorvet. 250 meter av en viktig tverrgata til gågata. Dette er en av gatene med flest butikker i Sarpsborg sentrum. Gata har ensidig gateparkering, toveis trafikk og relativt smale fortau.
