Abstract: 

This guide is designed to support people in local government and the transport sector including designers, planners, engineers, and decision makers make cycling a more inclusive activity for everyone.

Whilst our recommendations are primarily focused on the UK, they are equally applicable in cities and towns across the world.

There are many successful and truly inspiring examples where cities have made cycling more inclusive. With the right political will, investment and knowledge cycling can help people from all backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, abilities and genders.

The BPA Traffic Regulation Orders Guide

Publisher: 
British Parking Association
Publication date: 
July 2019
Abstract: 

This Guide is intended to provide an overview of the subject. The Guide is not, and could not be, exhaustive. There is not one correct way to create all TROs, and an approach which may be suitable in one circumstance would be inappropriate in another.

This Guide forms a basis of good practice and, just as importantly, will direct practitioners towards legislation, regulations and other resources that will enable them to devise their own solutions to real-world traffic management problems. Hyperlinks to these resources are provided throughout.

Congestion ahead: a faster route is now available

Publisher: 
Possible, Active Travel Academy
Publication date: 
May 2020
Abstract: 

As lockdown eases in the UK and other countries, people are starting to go back to work. However, public transport capacity and demand are likely to be severely depressed for some time. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has suggested that physical distancing means the public transport network would be reduced to 10% of its former capacity. In London, Transport for London have suggested a figure of 15%. Government has told people to avoid public transport if at all possible, suggesting they walk, cycle, or drive.

Supplementary Guidance on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

Publisher: 
Transport for London
Publication date: 
June 2020
Abstract: 

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) form a key part of the Streetspace for London programme. LTNs offer a cost-effective way of delivering safe and attractive streets for walking and cycling by preventing through traffic from using residential neighbourhoods to avoid main roads (often known as ‘rat running’), while retaining local access for residents and visitors. This can be achieved by various approaches to design to limit the movement of motor vehicles on certain streets and improving conditions for walking and cycling.

Better planning, better transport, better places

Publication date:

Abstract: 

For the last 20 years, governments have attempted to encourage a more sustainable approach to transport within spatial planning but have made limited progress.

Car parking and traffic still dominate housingdevelopments. Sustainable access to local services is poor. Sustainable approaches to transport are largely non-existent. The way we currently travel and thecontinued growth in road traffic are damaging our health,harming our towns, and contributing to climate change.

A Guide to Inclusive Cycling (2nd Edition)

Publisher: 
Wheels for Wellbeing
Publication date: 
June 2019
Abstract: 

This guide does not claim to be the answer to everything about inclusive cycling. Nor is it a highly technical set of design guidelines. Rather, it is somewhere in between: an accessible but thorough guide on the basic principles of inclusive cycling. We hope that it will be a useful tool for local authorities, transport bodies, civil engineers, academics, cycling organisations, disability charities, campaign groups and, of course, Disabled cyclists themselves.
