In short

Improving safety on the new Bikeway

Supporting on crossing design

The challenge

The city of Guayaquil is the second largest city in the country. No cycling infrastructure was built in the city. With the changing circumstances and mobility needs due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the city recognized the urgent need to provide a mobility solution. Therefore, an already planned bikeway was brought forward in time. However, the city lacks technical expertise in cycling design criterias.

The pilot

Together with CAF, TUMI supported the city in this project with technical advice, capacity building and procure additional materials to improve safety two crossing roads identified as unsafety for cyclists. The support ensured a holistic approach, and now a safe cycling network is provided to citizens.

After building capacities on their technical team, the city took the lead on the project and improved designs and construction processes. TUMI supported by providing technical expertise through specialists like Despacio and the necessary materials for the construction measures.

The impact

The city of Guayaquil now provides a safety cycling infrastructure for their citizens ensuring an attractive mean of transport and projecting the city as a model in the country on how to implement high quality infrastructure.

The technical team is ready to face future sustainable mobility projects with high capacity and criteria.
