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.
Implementing one or more new permanent measure(s), which contribute(s) to modal transfer from private car to environmentally sound means of transport.
Permanent measures implemented this year:
New or improved bicycle facilities
  • Improvement of bicycle network (creation of new lanes, extension, renovation, signposting etc)
Pedestrianisation
  • Improvement of infrastructure (new foot bridges, pavements, road crossings, zebra crossings etc)
More details on permanent measures:

In Jõgeva 2 km of new pedestrian and bicycle roads is under construction this year and will be ready in autumn and one new bicycle parking facility in town centre will be built. In this way we want to encourage people to use more bicycles and train traffic as most convenient and environmental friendly solution in traveling both of biggest cities in Estonia Tallinn and Tartu. These investments are implemented with kind support og EU Cohesion Fund. Also one small street will be changed to one direction traffic only to reduce traffic load there.
