Presto Topic 3 Cycling In Pedestrian Areas

  1. 1. International workshop Improving Cycling Culture in Cities February 26th-27th, 2010 Tczew - POLAND Cyclists and Pedestrians: Friends, Enemies or Symbiosis? Theo Zeegers Bremen Tczew Fietsersbond (Dutch Cyclists’ Union) Venice Grenoble Zagreb Presto is supported by
  2. 2. All kinds of predators on the streets On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  3. 3. • What are the chances ? • What are the problems ? • What are the solutions ? On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  4. 4. Modal split: division of daily trips over types of transport; Modal share: part of cycling in modal split On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  5. 5. What is your Modal share ? On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  6. 6. What is your Modal share ? > 25 % ? On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  7. 7. What is your Modal share ? > 10 % ? On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  8. 8. What is your Modal share ? > 5%? On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  9. 9. Modal Split in The Netherlands train bus other bicycle car walking On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  10. 10. Modal Split: shopping train other bus bicycle car walking On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  11. 11. 27 % modal share looks like …. On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  12. 12. On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  13. 13. On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  14. 14. Chances • High modal share of cycling • Comfortable and green transport in built-up areas and towns • People-friendly cities without cars • Good economical climate • Excellent accessibility of town centra On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  15. 15. Cylists are spending consumers (Spape & Christians, 2000) 2,5 2 1,5 car-driver cyclist 1 0,5 0 money spent visits per week money spent On-site training: Tczew per visit per week Cyclists and Pedestrians
  16. 16. What a cyclist would like to have concerning town centra • Accessibility of shops • Parking • Fast bicycle routes connecting • Passing-through corridors On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  17. 17. On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  18. 18. 3 different built-ups of city maps Legenda Pedestrian + cycling Only pedestrian S Bicycle racks On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  19. 19. 3 different built-ups of city maps Legenda Pedestrian + cycling Only pedestrian S Bicycle racks On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  20. 20. 3 different built-ups of city maps Legenda Pedestrian + cycling Only pedestrian S Bicycle racks On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  21. 21. Fietsberaad pubblication On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  22. 22. From here on Focus on possibilities to cycle in pedestrian areas / among pedestrians -> accessibility main focus, not quality of cycling On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  23. 23. Relation between intensities of Number of pedestrians per hour cyclists and pedestrians per meter Number of cyclists per hour per meter Nnuml;asdkfjlaskdjflasdf On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  24. 24. General picture of cyclist / pedestrian conflicts From observational study ! • Pedestrian does not change behaviour • Pedestrian little discomfort On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  25. 25. General picture of cyclist / pedestrian conflicts From observational study ! • Pedestrian does not change behaviour • Pedestrian little discomfort • Bicyclist adepts speed • Bicyclist avoids collision On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  26. 26. Some theoretical notions • Intensity: number of objects passing a given section per unit of time (say, hour) On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  27. 27. Some theoretical notions • Intensity: number of objects passing a given section per unit of time (say, hour) • Intensity per meter On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  28. 28. Some theoretical notions • Intensity: number of objects passing a given section per unit of time (say, hour) • Intensity per meter • Density: Number of objects per area (say, squared meter) On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  29. 29. Relation between these concepts Intensity per meter = Density * Velocity (# / m / h # / m2 * km/h) On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  30. 30. Investigation on combination of cyclists and pedestrians by observation: categories • 1: combination well possible • 2: combination possible but difficult • 3: combination not possible On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  31. 31. Possibility to cycle versus intensity-density of pedestrians Number of pedestrians per hour per meter On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  32. 32. Schubert (1984) threshold on cycling possibility on pedestrian density = 0,07 persons / m2 On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  33. 33. Schubert (1984) threshold on pedestrian density 0,07 persons / m2 At 2 km/h  Intensity = 140 /m /h On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  34. 34. Same, with Schubert threshold Number of pedestrians per hour per meter On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  35. 35. What about exceptional results ? Obstructions Segmented Number of pedestrians per hour per meter On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  36. 36. Not segmented and no cyclelane Number of pedestrians per hour per meter On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  37. 37. Not segmented with cycle(suggestion)lane Number of pedestrians per hour per meter On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  38. 38. Overview of results Percentage of cases On-site training: Tczew Combining possible ? Cyclists and Pedestrians
  39. 39. Summary of results: Combining cyclists and pedestrians Number of pedestrians /h /m < 100: always possible 100 – 160: possible with cycle(sugg.)lane 160 – 200: possible with segmentation (curb) On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
  40. 40. On-site training: Tczew Cyclists and Pedestrians
