TAL 03/03 Equestrian Crossings

Read document description

Local Transport Note 1/95 (LTN 1/95), The Assessment of Pedestrian Crossings1, gives details of the assessment method for pedestrian crossings. Once a decision has been made to install, Local Transport Note 2/95 (LTN 2/95), The Design of Pedestrian Crossings2, covers design considerations and details. LTN 1/951 notes that facilities for equestrians and cyclists can be assessed in a similar way. Both documents should be read in conjunction with this leaflet, which gives supplementary guidance on equestrian crossings. An equestrian crossing can be for horse and rider alone, or combined with cycle and/or pedestrian facilities.

TAL 02/08 Home Zones - Public Participation

Read document description

The success of a Home Zone can be judged by the extent to which the people who live there recognise the need for and accept it. Such acceptance largely depends upon effective community participation and involvement at all stages, from the original selection of the area through to implementation. The means that can be used to involve the community in developing a scheme are wide ranging, and there is no one approach that is most effective. A combination of methods is best used, that seeks to engage all sectors of the community, particularly groups that are often under-represented in the decision making processes. The nine Home Zone pilot schemes in England and Wales have used a range of approaches, some of which are mentioned as case studies in this leaflet

TAL 04/02 Benchmarking of Local Cycling Policy

Read document description

In February 2000, the CTC (Cyclists' Touring Club) launched a new initiative to adapt the technique of benchmarking to support local authorities in the implementation of their cycling policies. The process entails assessing policy and practice to determine what actually works in encouraging cycling in the UK context. It considers all aspects of cycling policy, from promotion to engineering design, and from training to maintenance of cycle tracks. Initially the project, which is funded by the Ashden Trust, extends over three years, with up to ten local authorities participating in the benchmarking process each year. The CTC is acting as facilitator, providing technical advice throughout the process.

TAL 09/01 The Nottingham Cycle Friendly Employers Project

Read document description

The Nottingham Cycle Friendly Employers project arose as a Cycle Challenge project in 1996. Each of the partners aimed to provide improved cycle facilities as part of their own commuter plans. In the main, the intention was to encourage employees to use alternative modes of transport to travel to work. Each of the partners introduced an individual package of measures. Their experiences are described in this leaflet. The partners to the project were Nottingham City Council, Boots Company plc, Nottinghamshire County Council, Queens Medical Centre, Clarendon College (now New College), CCN Group (now Experian), University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. Other partners were Pedals, the cycle campaign group, which provided advice, Nottingham Green Partnership, which was responsible for advertising material and Cleary Hughes Associates who were responsible for monitoring the effects of the projects and producing a final report.

TAL 12/99 Cycling for Better Health

Read document description

This leaflet summarises the results from a cycling and health experiment carried out by Allott & Lomax and the Policy Studies Institute. It was part of a wider Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) study for the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR). Changes in fitness and attitudes were studied in people of working age who had begun to cycle regularly, but who had previously taken little or no exercise. The effects that were observed should be of interest to professionals working in the area of health promotion. They are also potentially valuable to anyone planning travel awareness programmes (such as Travelwise), Green Transport Plans, and schemes to promote more cycling as a convenient and environmentally friendly form of transport. The results are described fully in TRL Report 346 'Cycling for a Healthier Nation'.

TAL 15/99 Cyclists at Road Works

Read document description

The safety of cyclists at road works was examined as part of a wider research study of cycling schemes by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) on behalf of the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR). Existing cycling related accidents were reviewed. Where appropriate, engineering techniques were recommended to help make cycling safer.

TAL 11/99 Improved Cycle Parking at South West Trains' stations in Hampshire

Read document description

Hampshire County Council in partnership with South West Trains, secured cycle challenge funding from the Department of Transport (now Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions - DETR) in 1995. The project aimed to increase the level of cycle use between residential and employment areas of Hampshire and a number of designated rail stations in the county. The intention was to encourage people to cycle to their local railway station to catch the train, thus enabling the station to become a better cycle and ride interchange. Over 100 cycle parking units were to be provided at ten stations - Brockenhurst, Eastleigh, Fareham, Havant, Liphook, Lymington Town, Micheldever, Southampton Parkway, St Denys and Winchester.
