Establishment of a double-sided cycle path
The project Bicycle lanes Gjessø – Silkeborg included the establishment of two bicycle lanes along Gjessø to the New Theater in Silkeborg – a stretch of five km. Barslund carried out a width extension of the road of 1.8 meters on each side, as well as a one-meter discount behind the cycle paths.

As the work has been carried out in a protected forest area, we have placed great focus on avoiding unnecessary strain on nature.
