Nine kilometers of cycle paths to Lysing


Closing gaps and continuous cycle connections are at the heart of cycle path attack in Vienna. A new cycleway concept for Leasing has now been delivered. More than 30 projects are planned, including a new cycle link to Lower Austria.

A new link to Lower Austria is to be built parallel to the Trieste Straße. There is still no continuous connection from Leisingbach to the city limits of Lower Austria in the south. In particular, the existing link path through Badner Bonn is to be expanded to a walking and cycling path next year. A total of 700 meters of cycle lanes will then be built on Kinskygasse and one-way cycling will be possible up to Don-Bosco-Gasse.

In 2026, Grawatschgasse will be upgraded to a bicycle-friendly street between Badner Bahn and Erlaaer-Straße, as well as a new bicycle path connecting it to Leisingbach in the north. A bicycle-friendly street on Don-Bosco-Gasse and Oldenburgergasse and a new crossing of Anton-Baumgartner-Straße ensure a connection to the Liesingbach cycle path in the Inzersdorf-1-Steg area.

More than 30 schemes for leasing

The merger is part of a total of more than 30 projects, some of which are already underway. All are scheduled to be completed by 2026. In Lising, Vienna’s fourth largest district, there will be more than nine kilometers of new cycle paths. The links are intended to bridge gaps in the main cycle transport network and the district network.


The cycle path network in Lysing will be extended to a total of nine kilometres

The expansion was made possible, inter alia, by the introduction of a nationwide parking sticker. “We (…) use freed areas, always, with accompanying greening measures and ensuring a better quality of stay,” said Mobility City Councilor Ulli Sima (SPÖ).

New green spaces are also being created

In Alt Erlaa alone, parking space usage has decreased by around 30 percent. It provides space for new uses of public space such as Wohnparkstrasse. Currently the U6 route and a new, convenient two-way cycle path are being built in the Alt-Erlaa residential park, closing the central gap of the district.

Along with creating cycle paths, the available space will be used for new greenery. For example, around 1,000 square meters of new green space will be created on Wohnparkstrasse and 45 trees will be planted.

Vienna’s cycle lane attack

The main Vienna cycle path attack is now in its third year. About 50 projects with 20 kilometers of new cycle paths are launched every year. The city is investing 20 million euros a year as part of a major cycle path offensive, up from 35 million euros last year. The focus of the attack is to close critical gaps and create new, continuous circulation links.
