The circulation plan definitely delivered on a few promises. It has proven to be a huge leap forward in the quality of public space and the safety and convenience of biking and walking. This was the main aim of the plan, so it can rightfully be called a success.

At the same time it does still require some fine tuning. There is currently a pretty complicated system for temporary permits to enter traffic-free streets and it can be quite a hassle to get the right one. The platform is a straightforward digital one, but there are too many different types of permits and it makes working in the city center quite annoying for building contractors. Room for improvement.

And as for bicycles: the modal share increase has been massive and it is definitely noticeable. It also creates new challenges: Ghent really needs to step up its bike parking game. There is a chronic and structural lack of bike parking in many places and there are way too few projects to increase it.

There are also still lots of places where the large volumes of bike traffic aren't integrated into the road design. This is a long and slow process of change. Like the clip says, it will still easily take a few decades to bring the infrastructure up to par with Utrecht and Groningen.

If they want to keep following the lead of Utrecht and Groningen they're going to have to start spending the same way too soon.
