Engineering a step change in safety, convenience and appeal: case studies from the UK and Europe
Parliament has endorsed targets for 10 per cent of all UK journeys being made by bike by 2025.
Significant new funding has been announced for cycling, and there is political will to revitalise the urban realm across our towns and cities. Planned expenditure, however, will remain much lower than in cycle-friendly countries such as the Netherlands and Denmark.
The focus for movement and place professionals must be on creating cost-effective highway, cycling and pedestrian infrastructure that delivers real, measurable for cyclists and pedestrians.
Designing cycling and walking infrastructure that works will explore the best practice engineering and design measures from across Europe needed to 'Get Britian Cyling':
- Traffic volume reduction
- Traffic speed reduction
- Junction treatment, hazard site treatment, traffic management
- Reallocation of carriageway space
- Cycle tracks away from roads
- Designing-out conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists
Essential case studies will unlock the key design and engineering elements that will inform future highway, cycling and pedestrian infrastructure in the next decade:
- Utilising hard and soft infrastructure: creating a positive urban environment
- Making a great cycle and pedestrian city: case studies from UK, Europe and beyond
- Designing beyond local: delivering integrated, accessible urban cycling and pedestrian networks
- Understanding strategic lessons about sharing road space: which interventions have most impact?
