Madrid:   Prioritizing people over cars

After a massive   highway was built on both sides of the Manzanares River in Madrid in the   1970s, nearby neighbourhoods declined and most city inhabitants avoided the   region entirely. In 2003, Mayor Alberto Ruíz-Gallardón implemented his vision   to bury the highways and move traffic through tunnels instead. Ultimately,   the river banks were freed for pedestrians and more than nine km of the   Madrid Río Park were designed with playgrounds, ball fields, bike paths, and   a wading pool known fondly as “the beach” (World Watch Institute Blog, 2016).
