An app for the easy application of cycle route audit tools

We've written recently about the potential value of new audit tools for assessing the quality of cycling routes, and networks - Transport for London's Cycling Level of Service, and the Welsh Active Travel Guidance's Cycling Route Audit Tool.

There are proposals to use the elements of these tools in a new user-friendly app, that allows a route to be assessed easily, without too much technical knowledge. 

We will design a user friendly app/ website incorporating the Welsh Government Active Travel Audit Tools for Walking and Cycling (2 separate tools). The Audit Tools are based on a relatively straight forward traffic light system and in the first instance we would look at producing a simple version for use by those with no knowledge of the technicalities of infrastructure design.

The project team is composed of Gwenda Owen, Jo Sachs-Eldridge and Maria McGerty. The intention is to win a slice of £101,000 of funding from the GeoVation Challenge project, 'How Can We Enable People in Britain to Live in Better Places'.
