It has been a year since the municipal elections, and we are asking the municipal authorities for transportation from Prague 1 to Prague 22 about their plans regarding cycling transportation. We continue with the district of Prague 20, which has 15,000 residents. Located in the northeast of Prague, it includes the district of Horní Počernice. Hana Moravcová, councilor for Šance pro Počernice (an association of independent candidates, ODS, and TOP09), responds to our written inquiries.
Do you have plans in the coming years to build new bike paths, designate bike lanes, or legalize bike passage in your urban district? Where?

Is there a plan to connect to the bike path along Mladých Běchovic Street, which ends at the border of your district?
Yes, currently, the project preparation for combined territorial and construction proceedings is underway.
There is a reconstruction of the railway from Lysá. Will it be possible to cross the bridge over the expressway between Počernice and Černý Most by bike?

Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain answers to the questions „Which foreign city inspires you in terms of transportation?“ and „Do you ever move around the city on a bicycle?“.
