Abstract: 

Cyclenation in collaboration with CTC would like the guidance contained in the appendices to this paper to be adopted as the national standard for cycle mapping in the UK. Cycle mapping has become far too diverse with many maps bearing little relation to the actual conditions for cyclists on the ground, with a unhealthy preoccupation with ‘facilities’. Now is the time to adopt a common approach to useful tool for all people using bicycles.

Abstract: 

It is my intention in this dissertation to look at aspects of the history of the popularity of Cycling as a transport form since 1945. The focus will be on cycling policy in a comparative perspective, and its expression in the form of provision of traffic infrastructure, especially cycle paths. This will be seen through the window of the urban transport mix.

Psychology on the road

The Psychologist
Publication date: 
September 2012
Abstract: 

Psychological perspectives on drivers and driving have been with us for since before the advent of mass motoring. The car’s unique potential to afford freedom and compromise safety has been a focus of formal psychological study for almost as long. This has resulted in a canon of excellent research, the shaping of interventions and legislation, and the saving and enhancement of lives. In seeking to prevent collisions, it has had quite an impact!

The psychology of sustainable transport

Publisher:

Abstract: 

Cars contribute to local air pollution, traffic danger, congestion and poor physical health due to lack of exercise. If the final goal of sustainable development is to sustain or improve the quality of life for all, now and into the longterm future, the current growth in private car use is clearly unsustainable. Understanding why most people prefer using a car over other modes of transport for their daily travel, and how they can be persuaded to use their cars less or even abandon them altogether, is therefore an important goal for psychology.

Abstract: 

Atkins was commissioned as part of a multidisciplinary project team which includes MVA Consultancy, Phil Jones Associates and TRL to carry out evidence based research into the factors which influence the design and operation of segregated and unsegregated pedestrian and cyclist shared use facilities.

Shared Use Routes for Pedestrians and Cyclists (LTN 1/12)

Publisher: 
DfT
Publication date: 
September 2012
Abstract: 

Shared use routes are designed to accommodate the movement of pedestrians and cyclists. Shared use schemes require careful consideration and this Local Transport Note provides advice on their planning, design and provision. It suggests a scheme development process to help in deciding if shared use is appropriate for any given situation and stresses the importance of high quality inclusive design that addresses the needs of all users. It places particular emphasis on involving users, residents, and other stakeholders in the design process.
