Keuzeschema sanering palen op fietspaden (selection plan for bollards on cycle paths)

Publisher: 
CROW
Publication date: 
December 2014
Abstract: 

This selection planning document helps road managers to decide on the placement of bollards in cycle paths. In addition, it gives recommendations on the safe design of locations where bollards are deemed necessary. The selection schedule was completely renewed in December 2014 based on extensive practical evaluations.

 

Diversifying and normalising cycling in London, UK: an exploratory study on the influence of infrastructure

Publisher: 
Journal of Transport and Health
Publication date: 
November 2016
Abstract: 

This article examines the extent to which protected infrastructure is associated with greater diversity and normalisation of cycling. In the UK, cyclists are predominantly male and often wear distinctive cycle clothing rather than everyday clothes. This is not the case in higher-cycling countries such as the Netherlands and Germany. It has been argued that the UK's demographic skewing may be partly due to poor quality infrastructure which can be off-putting for many, but particularly for women, children and older people.

B01 Connections And Links

Publisher: 
Cycling England
Publication date: 
August 2008
Abstract: 

Additional off-carriageway links can offer enhanced permeability, potentially safer routes for cyclists and advantageous journey times compared to motor traffic. These need to be designed, built and maintained so that they achieve their intention of drawing cyclists away from less attractive routes on the carriageway.

The measures available to create cycle links can range from a cycle gap in a road closure to the construction of a new bridge. To be effective, cycle links should be clearly signed, direct and relevant to cyclists’ needs.

A15 Audits And Risk Assessment

Publisher: 
Cycling England
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.
