#cityfutures: Building a transport system for a sustainable future (Katja Leyendecker)

  1. 1. Building #cityfutures a a transport system for a sustainable future Katja Leyendecker Eur.Ing CEng C.WEM MCIWEM Water engineer Chair, Newcastle Cycling Campaign
  2. 2. The Engineering Challenges of Sustainable Transport Infrastructure…what do engineers do all day? Utilities (gas, water, electricity) - grids and generation Communication (broadband, television, radio, mobile phone, landline) Water and disposal (sewage, landfill, transfer stations) Flood and water (rivers, streams, canals, dams, reservoirs) Transport (roads and streets, bridges, rail, ports, airports, freight distribution centres, bus / light rail / local transport) #cityfutures
  3. 3. Stresses on society and the future of cities Big national projects  Decentralised community solutions Economic growth Sustainability = living in a finite habitat Population Consumption #cityfutures
  4. 4. Stresses on society and the future of cities Attitudes, prevailing opinions, myths, societal acceptance, inertia #cityfutures
  5. 5. Stresses on society and the future of cities Attitudes, prevailing opinions, myths, societal acceptance, inertia #cityfutures
  6. 6. Stresses on society and the future of cities Attitudes, prevailing opinions, myths, societal acceptance, inertia #cityfutures

  10. 10. Stresses on society and the future of cities The bicycle - the missing ingredient in urban transport #cityfutures
  11. 11. Modal shift “Sustrans calls on UK governments to invest in doubling the number of journeys under five miles made by foot, bike and public transport to four out of five by 2020.” #cityfutures
  12. 12. Modal shift? Why? Transport emissions from personal car use #cityfutures
  13. 13. Modal shift? Why? Public health crisis Cost of motoring – fair society Air quality Noise pollution Climate change Doing the right thing ... The benefits are well understood, researched... #cityfutures
  14. 14. What we know People who currently cycle, cycle regardless of the current conditions The majority of people don't cycle And they tell us they don't cycle because cycling • is for kids and not normal for adults • there is no safe space for cycling #cityfutures
  15. 15. Political will Steady funding / investment Technical expertise, engineering and land use planning What we know #cityfutures
  16. 16. How much do we ‘need’ the car? What can other countries tell us? The transitioned countries : Netherlands, Denmark, Germany The transitioners: Spain (Sevilla), Ireland (Dublin), US (New York City) #cityfutures
  17. 17. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport #cityfutures
  18. 18. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport citywide plan is needed, cabinet, policy implications, car parking policy, city centre bus route rationalisation, question traffic flow model, transport transition debate, car restraint #cityfutures
  19. 19. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport clearer space definition will remove conflict, road classification, fit all roads over 30mph with cycle-specific infrastructure #cityfutures
  20. 20. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport creating ownership, removing rat-runs, install gateways and necking-down corners, calmer streets, streets for people #cityfutures
  21. 21. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport prioritise walking and cycling, many different concepts, Newcastle should innovate #cityfutures
  22. 22. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport Newcastle's 20mph conversion is incomplete, community speed surveys, speed reduction is not always enough, cycle infrastructure may still be required
  23. 23. The six building blocks for sustainable urban transport promote cycle routes, talking positively about walking and cycling, discouraging car use #cityfutures
  24. 24. Who is responsible? #cityfutures
