Can we make our roads safer for cyclists?

Cycle_Course.JPGOverview:

Government and local authorities actively encourage increases in cycling, for both health and transport reasons. 

Some areas have seen significant increases in recent years. The provision of cycle infrastructure facilities is a vital part of this process. Transport for London has produced a comprehensive design document - the London Cycle Design Standards, most of which is applicable in other parts of the country.  

Serious injury and fatal cycle collisions showed an upward trend for the ten year period up to 2015. An understanding of the needs of cyclists and the opportunities for designing facilities is essential for local authority designers, those consultants involved in cycle and traffic schemes, and for road safety auditors.

Aims and Objectives:

  • To encourage delegates to understand the needs of cyclists using the highway network        
  • To demonstrate best practice in cycle design
  • To encourage delegates to share their own experience in this area though a series of discussions and workshops

Topics Covered:

  • Facilities for Cyclists
