Trondheim is one of the top 10 bicycle-friendly cities in the world. There's been huge construction projects all around town for the past two years, part of that is installing even more pedestrian friendly trails throughout the city.
The past month they've ripped up the main roads through downtown and installed bike lanes along major roads, reducing the number of automobile lanes in the process. I wonder how this will affect traffic – better or worse? Hard to say. One thing is for certain: Norway does all it can to discourage driving.
