Winter street design with ZICLA products in cold climate cities.

20 Dec, 2023 | City, OPINION | 0 comments

The feasibility of installing ZICLA products in snowy cities is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive. Snow and rain are common concerns when installing bike lane separators and bus platforms.
However, ensuring the safety and accessibility of citizens on the winter street design is possible despite the cold, rain, or snow.

We have carried out some projects over the years in cities with adverse weather conditions.

1. La Sagne, Switzerland.

In 2021, we installed a Vectorial® bus platform in this small town in Switzerland to improve accessibility at the bus stop located at the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB CFF FFS) train station.

2. New York City, United States.

In New York City, we have installed 14 modular bus platforms of the Vectorial® system. Some are located in iconic places in Manhattan, such as 14th Street and 7th Avenue, or the most recent installation at JFK Airport in 2022.

3. Vancouver, Washington, United States.

Surrounded by snow! Our Zebra® 9 bike lane separators were installed in 2021 in Vancouver.

4. Vilnius, Lithuania.

We installed Zebra® 9 bike lane separators in the Baltic capital in 2022. One advantage of these separators is that the retroreflective bands make them visible day and night. This makes them ideally suited for cities like Vilnius, where there are few daylight hours during the winter.

5. Everett, Massachusetts, United States.

The anti-slip texture and water-draining capability of the main components of the Vectorial® system ensure accessibility and safety when boarding the bus.
