Abstract: 

Introduction: This leaflet introduces and summarises the recently published Guidelines for Cycle Audit and Cycle Review. The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions’ (DETR) welcomes the introduction of detailed guidance on the practice of carrying out Cycle Audit on new schemes, and Cycle Review on existing networks.

One of the primary objectives of the National Cycling Strategy (NCS), launched in 1996 and supported by the DETR, is to encourage and enable planning and highway authorities to create a cycle-friendly infrastructure. That will help in making existing roads safer and more attractive for cycling, and supplementing them with specific cycle facilities where necessary. Specifically, the NCS recognised that a high priority was to introduce procedures to ensure that cyclists were properly considered in new highways and traffic schemes. It therefore recommended that specific procedures should be developed for use by all highway authorities.

A15 Audits And Risk Assessment

Publisher:

Publication date: 
August 2008
Abstract: 

All changes to the highway network, including maintenance schemes, should be the subject of a cycle audit. Where safety audits identify that normally recognised design standards cannot be met, projects should be the subject of a risk assessment that involves user representatives.
