Designing for Walking

Read document description

This document explains how facilities for walking should be designed, following on from how they are planned, which is covered in Planning for Walking. Well-designed facilities that follow desire lines, are clutter-free, and are legible to all users will assist in enabling walking journeys and improve the experience of those already walking. The design of facilities should also consider the volumes of people walking along (actual or desired) or crossing streets, and the solutions will depend on a variety of considerations. The needs of all users should be carefully taken into account and prioritised as appropriate.

Planning for Walking

Read document description

This Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) guideline Planning for Walking: • describes the characteristics of pedestrian journeys, • lists the benefits of walking, • identifies factors that discourage walking and how they can be overcome, • summarises the legal framework that applies to pedestrians and • outlines the way that plans and strategies for pedestrian travel are developed. As it is a web-based publication that can be modified relatively easily, CIHT would welcome examples that build on the content of this guidance for inclusion in further guidance on the subject. These guidelines are complemented by another CIHT document, Designing for Walking (CIHT, 2015), which covers the design and evaluation of facilities for pedestrians

TAL 2/14 Using the Core and Vac technique at road works

Read document description

Guidance on the use of coring and vacuum extraction (core and vac) for repairing buried equipment. The technique allows companies to open the road, repair the buried equipment and reinstate the site much faster than conventional excavation methods.

TAL 3/14 Using hydraulically bound mixtures at road works

Read document description

Covers the use of hydraulically bound mixtures (HBMs) in road reinstatements layers. This has the advantages of: •potentially fewer work lorry trips required •the faster compaction times sometimes associated with HBMs and reduced site occupation times.

TAL 7/14 Mapping underground assets

Read document description

Advice on the various mapping techniques for locating and identifying buried pipes and cables. The use of these techniques can help reduce site occupation times when those assets require maintenance or repair.

TAL 4/14 Using cementitious mixtures at road works

Read document description

Covers use of cementitious mixtures in road work reinstatements, providing guidance on what is required before they can be trafficked or overlaid. Cementitious mixtures, including high early strength mixtures, can be used to replace cementitious and unbound materials. Their use can reduce site occupation times.

TAL 6/14 Using road plates at road works

Read document description

Guidance on the use of road plates for temporarily returning roads with unreinstated (not filled in) excavations to service. Road plates can often be installed and removed quite quickly, making short term returns to service more practicable. The main reason for using them is to reduce traffic congestion during peak times - especially useful at heavily trafficked sites.

TAL 8/14 Implementing extended working hours at road works

Read document description

What you need to take into account if you’re considering extended working hours to reduce overall site occupation times. This guidance focuses on works in urban areas where there is greater need to limit disturbance to residents and others.

Planning for Cycling

Read document description

Cycling is an important part of urban transport. However, for many years its role has been neglected in the UK, with the focus mainly on the needs of motor traffic. Cycling is one of the most sustainable forms of transport, and increasing its use has great potential. To release this potential, highways, public spaces and other rights-of-way need to be organised accordingly. Planning for cycling is discussed in these guidelines; detailed design of infrastructure and facilities for cycle users will be examined elsewhere.
