This section contains design guidance on cycle-friendly infrastructure,Â cycling on the highway and streets for people.
Â Documents held on this website and links to others on their own host site are used.Â
Will these get read by local decision makers ? Let's hope that people designing and altering the Wolverhampton cycle network [ie all roads except motorways plus cycleways] include practical pedal cycle use in their designs. One side of Road Safety Section teaches vehicular cycling to the National Cycle Training Standards after all.Â
Or do they really wish to win a WoWcc Chocolate Chain Ring or the shame of a Warrington Cycle Campaign Facility of the Month award ?
Cycling deserves theÂ best it can get for vehicular cycling and for nervous shared-use cycling to thrive.
This document sets out the principals, guidance and standards for designing to reduce barriers to cycling, in order to support road safety targets and increased levels of cycling in London. It is aimed not just at designers of cycle route schemes, but at all designers of infrastructure that cyclists will use or that will affect cyclists.
