Mesh density

'Mesh density' describes whether a cycle network is 'dense' or 'loose'.

A good, dense cycle network will have parallel routes close to each other - a high mesh density. 

The London Cycling Design Standards calls for a mesh density of 400m - 400m between parallel routes. The CROW manual stiputes a mesh density of 300m in urban areas.

Mesh density is a measure of cohesion.
