  12. 12. Strategic Routes “Fit for Cycling” how do we get from here…. ….to here?
  13. 13. Department for Transport “The road network is the most basic (and important) cycling facility available. The preferred way of providing for cyclists is to create conditions on the carriageway where cyclists are content to use it, particularly in urban areas. Measures that reduce the volume or speed of motor traffic benefit other road users by making the roads safer and more pleasant for them to use.’ (Cycle Infrastructure Design, LTN 2/08)
  14. 14. Hierarchy of Provision Consider first Traffic reduction Speed reduction Junction treatment, hazard site treatment, traffic management Reallocation of carriageway space • bus lanes • widened nearside lanes • cycle lanes Cycle tracks away from roads Consider last Conversion of footpaths to shared use cycle tracks for pedestrians and cyclists
  15. 15. Objectives for Routes Our Seven Strategic Routes will … be comfortable to the user: minimising effort and exertion and respecting topography be direct and coherent, giving clarity throughout the route and fully integrate with neighbourhood routes be attractive enough to get people to 'dust down their bikes' and not just appeal to the 'experienced' cyclist feel intrinsically safe to the user: away from fast traffic and avoiding conflict by giving cyclists greater priority conveniently link key centres of employment, retail, culture and education, transport hubs so that we have a reason to use them
