  • Each trainer is to complete this section for the specific training activity
  • So why should we design for cyclists?
    Why not let them just be part of the road network or path network.
    Touch on a module presented by Jim Riach on Policy.

  • The wider range of disabilities and access requirements is included in the first category.
    Question: do you agree with this hierarchy?
    Question: motorcycles are not included – where do you think they might fit?
    There is no right model as some authorities may choose to change the order of the first three depending on such issues as topography etc

  • Over the years Sustrans has developed guidelines for the design and construction of off road cycle ways.
    These tend to be philosophical as well as specifications.
    The greenway guide was developed primarily to be used by partners on the connect 2 projects although it is fully relevant to any other greenway project. The guide covers technical aspects such as designing of gradients etc and also talks about wider aspects such as monitoring and land arrangements.
    The NCN guidelines in muchly superseded by the likes of cycling by design it was written to provide a standard for the development of the NCN and still has uses in the standards to be used for NCN routes.
    Making ways for the bicycle is the early Sustrans design and construction guidance and has useful information on path construction techniques.

  • Capture Data on Flip chart from the homework question:
  • The Devon Way is a core path which follows the former railway line between Alloa
    and Dollar. It is 10k long and passes through the communities of Alloa, Sauchie,
    Fishcross, Marchglen, Devonside, Tillicoultry and Dollar.
    It's southern end links with the newly opened Alloa Railway Station and with the
    National Cycle Route, which also forms a part of the Round the Forth route.
    It also provides access to the newly opened Clackmannan Community Health
    Centre and to shops and other facilities in Alloa town centre and passes close to a
    number of primary schools and horse livery yards.
    Because of these links, the Devon Way has great potential for use in active travel,
    for use by tourists visiting the area and for recreation.
  • Take a step back and ask why complete a demonstration project?
  • The main driver for the development of a site was the production of CAPS and the introduction of a facility to share good practice in one venue due to the varying projects throughout Scotland.
    Cycling Scotland was also used to queries in various areas including shared use paths, junctions, access control and contra flow lanes.
    A number of years prior to CAPS we had looked at developing demo sites to promote good practice and the foundations were laid.
    What was the next step?
  • WHY??
    Cycle action plan for Scotland
    Professionals agreed if we have money the following should gain the most investment – On Road – Off Road
    Add to that the questionnaires filled in stated segregation from traffic
    Later we will look at what that actually means as people can not see reducing cars may help them
  • Inception Report developed prior to final version of CAPS and therefore slightly different from the ones listed above. Do not wish to go over this in great detail but I have a copy of the inception report here if you wish to look through.
  • Expanding on Action 2, cycling scotland has set in motion the ability to offer mcm at various locations:
    Specific to councils in their area
    Universities
    Demo Projects
    Could not do it ourselves
  • Meeting was held between paths for all and Cycling Scotland to discuss future development and at this time it was agreed the Devon Way and Clacks could be a partner.
    Sustrans have provided numerous projects and are funders.
  • Where are we now:
    Well we have progressed the above in the following ways:
    Inception – complete Report Produced
    Public Questionnaire – Requires to be completed
    Design Report – will be a live document
    Design – Ongoing
    Construction – Programmed for Dec/Jan
    Maintenance –
    Training – well here we are for the first of a series of courses over the next three years
  • What should a demo site criteria be?
    Accessible - Train Station – Off Road
    Typical Situation – Old Railway Line and Crossings and Access control issues It should reflect the vastly different environments encountered across Scotland so that access practitioners and managers
    Live – The path is in use today
    Demonstrate various good practice examples
    Commitment from CS, Sus, PfA and CC
  • There has been a continuous development of the path network from Alloa over the last few years.
    Requires to be upgraded
    Equestrian Use
    Current good practice
    Ownership of Council
  • Not going to go into this too much but signing is the main area being taken forward by Sustrans and Clacks
    One area of future work is www.cyclestreets.org
    Commuting into Alloa – Led Rides
  • We will go in more detail the list above during the morning.
  • Provide more information
  • Each trainer is to complete this section for the specific training activity
  • The five core principles are set out here and explored in more detail in the following slides. They may be found in Local transport Note 02/08 DfT 2008
    Note: this is almost identical to guidance contained within Cycling by Design. The order and wording is slightly different but the principles remain the same.
