Abstract: 

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of Air Quality in Waltham Forest
In this study, for the first time King’s have used the new COMEAP (2017) health impact
recommendations to quantify the effects of air pollution on health outcomes in Waltham Forest.
Mortality impact results for long-term exposure to air pollution in Waltham Forest are all
expressed in terms of life years – the most appropriate metric for the health impact of air
pollution concentration changes over time.
Despite projected changes in air pollution concentrations between 2013 and 2020, Waltham

Oxfordshire Cycling Design Standards

Abstract: 

INTRODUCTION

A better environment for cycling

We would like to see an Oxfordshire where more people choose to cycle for more journeys. We believe this can be achieved through good highway design to create an attractive safe environment for cycling. The better we can make the environment for cycling, the more people will choose to cycle. We believe there is a huge unmet demand for more people choosing to cycle, which we will unlock if we get it right.

A more attractive choice

Abstract: 

Barclays Cycle Superhighways is one of three major programmes alongside the Barclays Cycle Hire Scheme and Biking Boroughs designed to help meet the Mayor’s vision for cycling in London:

“To make the physical and cultural changes required for London to become a cyclised city: one where people can ride their bicycles safely, enjoyably and easily in an environment that embraces cycling.”1

Healthy Streets for London

Publisher: 
Transport for London
Publication date: 
February 2017
Abstract: 

London is facing an inactivity crisis. Over decades, machines, cars and technology have gradually taken over many of the tasks that used to require physical effort. More than 40 per cent of Londoners

do not achieve the recommended 150 minutes of activity a week; and 28 per cent do less than 30 minutes a week. Almost without realising it, we have engineered physical activity out of our daily lives.

Analysis of police collision files for pedal cyclist fatalities in London, 2001 - 2006

Publisher: 
Transport Research Laboratory
Publication date: 
October 2009
Abstract: 

The numbers of pedal cyclist fatalities in London have varied over the years from 1986 to 2006; averaging 18 per year, the maximum was 33 in 1989 and the minimum was 8 in 2004. There has been a substantial increase in cycling, particularly in central and inner London. The London Travel Report 2007 (Transport for London, 2007a) reported that in 2006 the cycle flows on London’s major roads were almost twice as many as in 2000. During the period January 2001 to December 2006 a total of 108 pedal cyclists were killed in London.

A shift from motorised travel to active transport: What are the potential health gains for an Australian city?

Publisher: 
PLOS One
Publication date: 
October 2017
Abstract: 

An alarmingly high proportion of the Australian adult population does not meet national physical activity guidelines (57%). This is concerning because physical inactivity is a risk factor for several chronic diseases. In recent years, an increasing emphasis has been placed on the potential for transport and urban planning to contribute to increased physical activity via greater uptake of active transport (walking, cycling and public transport).
