    I love this. Planters make so much sense. Extending sidewalks or streets is the best way to go. It's just a matter of figuring out how to give space to pedestrians, cyclists and cars.

      While I can't find the link, I'm reminded of the pop-up bike lane that was created somewhere in the USA, where the city-engineer removed the lane, replied with a nice, polite and informative letter, and then later that year (2013?) ended up installing a t0-standard/code bike lane.

        Awesome. Reminds me of The Better Block Project! They improve sidewalks all the time with pop-up installations and some have become implemented by cities. You can get training from them here: http://betterblock.org/training/
