E-cargo bicycles: on cycle path of carriageway?

To ensure that e-cargo bicycles and other light electric vehicles are technically safe and used safely, an Approval Framework for Light Electric Vehicles (LEV framework) is being developed in The Netherlands. The LEV Framework also governs the place on the road of LEVs. Sessions with road authorities in the preparation of the LEV framework in 2020 showed that some road authorities were concerned about heavy e-cargo bicycles on bicycle paths because of their size and the mass difference with cyclists. For this reason, it was investigated what the most suitable traffic rules are for the place on the road of heavy e-cargo bicycles for transporting goods or children with a maximum construction speed of 25 km/h: the cycle path, the carriageway or, depending on the traffic situation, a tailor-made solution in between.
