Wegen Werken

WegenWerken (RoadWorks) project is a collaboration of De Andere Markt and the Trage Wegen association, which promotes the role of slow roads in cities through research and practice, as well as the city of Genk and the province of Limburg. The project looks into the role of slow connections in Genk to elaborate, visualise and encourage their future as public spaces with productive potential – contributing to community life, local economy and sustainability. Moreover, it reflects on their importance in linking different, presently disconnected, neighbourhoods and providing a meaningful infrastructure for slow movement in a car-dominated city.subordinated to large transport infrastructures.
