How can we modernize the mobility network?
— Transport infrastructure - roads, the rail network, etc. – is traditionally seen as a major post-crisis investment vector for boosting the economy. Since it has immediate effects on employment, this strategy of funding major projects is perceived as a sign of "progress" – the ideal remedy for recovering from the crisis and its consequences. But construction of new infrastructure is incompatible with respecting climate objectives over the longer term.
The 2020 recovery plan must mark a change in infrastructure development policy, with a focus on renovating existing infrastructure (rail and road) and creating "soft" infrastructure, i.e. cycle tracks and pedestrian facilities.
