Super Cycle Highway

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2012 - 7127
Copenhagen has just inaugurated the first of a series of Super Cycle Highways.

The idea is have a "Green Wave" of traffic lights from the suburbs to Copenhagen City Centre.

The speed of the the "Green Wave" is 20 km/h. And almost the entire route is along cycle paths.

There are also special facilities such as cycle stands at traffic lights...

I think you should also mention the cycle barriers and narrowings on these alleged "highways".
