Gertrud | Bikeability Workshop December 2010

  1. 1. Bike-abilityCities for zero emission and public healthAdvisory Board 02-12-2010Gertrud Jørgensen Inger Grønkjær Ulrich

  6. 6. Goal and QuestionsCreate knowledgefor planners and policymakersAbout• People: Who bikes, where and why?• Urban environment: how does it cater for bicycles?• Relations: between people and urban environment, what makes cities bike-able?To help enhance bikeability of cities
  7. 7. Or to investigate ..Effects of..• Social, cultural and demographic variables in the urban population• The urban spatial structure (population density, built environment, urban functions, and amount, location and quality of bicycle facilities)• Specific changes in bicycle infrastructure (new paths, bridges)• Changes to the route attributes (traffic lights, separation of bicycle lanes, greening )…on the amount and quality of bicycling in cities
  8. 8. Five workpackages• WP1 Cycling behaviour and its preconditions: motives, lifestyles, opportunities and constraints.• WP2 Environmental determinants for bikeability: Individual cycling behaviour in selected neighbourhoods.• WP3 Choice modelling for simulation of bicyclist behaviour: Simulating flow of individual bicyclists in urban areas as a response to changes to the urban environment• WP4 Interventions to the bicycling infrastructure: Municipal strategies for bikeability and evaluation of specific infrastructure• WP5 Planning Guidance and Dissemination: presenting results to policymakers and planners.
  9. 9. WP relations WP5 Planning Guidance and Dissemination WP1: WP2 Cyclist behaviour – Environmental what, how, why ? determinants and specific behaviour WP4 WP3 Interventions to Simulation of behaviour infrastructure

  14. 14. Who we are18 researchers from• Forest & Landscape Denmark, University of Copenhagen (4 researchers, 1 post doc, 2 PhD’s)• Architecture, Design and Media technology, Aalborg University (3 researchers)• Development and Planning, Aalborg University (1 researcher, 1 post doc)• Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark (1 researcher, 1 PhD)• Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands)• Danish Cancer Society• Danish Cycling Federation• I-CE, Interface for cycling Expertise (the Netherlands)Budget• The project is financed by The Danish Council for Strategic Research• Granted support: 12.998 Mill Kr ~ 6,5 mill $Time frame• 2010 till 2013
  15. 15. Scientific advisory board Director, Professor Michael Batty, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London (expertise: GPS, Simulation, Planning) Associate professor Wolfgang Haider, School of Resource and Environmental Management, Simon Fraser University, British Columbia (expertise: Choice experiments) Research Associate Dave Horton, Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University (expertise: Bicycle sociology) Professor James F. Sallis, Department of Psychology, San Diego State University (expertise: health and active living; environmental interventions) – not present today
  16. 16. ChallengesDifferent backgrounds, disciplines, theories and – notleast - methods•Surveys & Statistics•Interviews•Choice modelleing•GPS based studies•Interventions – evaluations•Simulation•Case studiesCan we bridge the gaps? Can we use data and resultsacross workpackages? Can we make one project? Canwe make valid results?
