Abstract

This research proposes an adequate green infrastructure design for bicycle paths' connectivity allows mitigating environmental pollution, which arose from the current problem of vehicular congestion on Av. Universitaria and Av. The saturation of motorized vehicles causes Túpac Amaru on said road. Therefore, it is proposed to develop the method of evaporation of traffic by using bicycle lanes in the aforementioned avenue to improve users' quality of life, focusing on mobility and improving the level of service of the users. Said proposal is based on a sampling, which was carried out to the district's real working cycle population, which helped determine its mobilization behavior, and according to these results, the most optimal layout of the bike path network was determined. Other important aspects considered for the realization of the bicycle path network is the implementation of green infrastructure to improve the spatial quality of the user; however, the places of the maximum influx of the district were also taken into accounts, such as the Sinchi Roca Zonal Park and the Naranjal Station of the Metropolitan. The project's viability is based on the fact that bicycles are gaining momentum due to global climate change. It is an innovative and multifunctional project; a sustainable and light work to be carried out with ecological materials, thus offering resistance and portability, adding to minimizing the environmental impact in the Comas district.
