In Prague 10, a 60-meter-long contraflow bike lane has been marked on Pod Kapličkou Street. This small intervention shortens the cycling route by almost 500 meters.

Most probably, the one-way regime in this residential street functioned historically as a measure to limit through traffic by cars. However, it unintentionally restricted bicycle traffic as well.

In response to a suggestion from a reader of Městem na kole, a contraflow bike lane was marked on the street. For most of the street, a bike pictogram corridor was used, and at the intersection with Izraelská Street, the exit of the contraflow bike lane is protected by a traffic island.

Interestingly, the implementation took nearly four years. The proposal was approved by the city district as early as November 2020 and was assigned to the Prague Technical Road Administration (TSK Praha) for implementation.
