"New cycling infrastructure represents one of the most cost effective investments available for city-planners, according to a new study by Danish and Australian researchers.

"A new paper by Stefan Gössling from Lund University and Andy S. Choi from the University of Queensland, published in the journal Ecological Economics, calculated that it costs six times more for society and individuals to travel by car instead of bicycles.

"It is the first time academics have attempted to put a total cost on car use compared to cycling. The study considers a wide range of environmental and societal impacts of both modes of transport in Copenhagen, a city that is famous for its expansive cycle network."
