Investigating the potential health benefits of increasing cycling in the Cycling City and Towns

Read document description

This paper presents the results of analysis of the CCT Evaluation Baseline Survey results by independent expert Nick Cavill in collaboration with DfT social researchers. The analysis investigates the potential for delivering public health benefits through increasing cycling amongst different population groups. It then explores the size and characteristics of those groups to inform the targeting of cycling interventions. The results are relevant to local authorities who are making the case for investment in cycling, and considering how best to design schemes to realise the health benefits of cycling.

Well-maintained Highways Tracked Changes Version

Read document description

Since Well-maintained Highways was published in 2005, Government Policy with respect to highway maintenance has developed and evolved in a number of areas. There have also been a number of changes, including the introduction of new statutory duties on highway authorities. To assist users of this Code, the Roads Liaison Group has prepared complementary guidance to advise and direct users to where they may find more up to date information to assist them in implementing best practice and the recommendations of the Code. Users of the Code should treat this complementary guidance as up-to date and having the same status as the Code. Where paragraphs have been amended, they supersede the ones in the Code. It must be noted that these updates should not be read in isolation but should be considered within the context of the Code

Sideguards on heavy goods vehicles: assessing the effects on pedal cyclists injured by trucks overtaking or turning left: TRL (DOP 9/10)

Read document description

Transport for London (TfL) developed and published a Cycle Safety Action Plan that proposed a wide range of actions to improve cycle safety. These actions include, under the heading 'technology', working with the freight industry to identify the most cost-effective commercial vehicle safety measures that could be fitted either to new vehicles or to the existing fleet. The action specifically states that sideguards and motion sensors will be considered. This study has drawn together the findings of research literature, in particular three recent studies that consider heavy vehicle safety generally and/or sideguards specifically, and undertaken analysis of relevant accident data in order to inform consideration of the likely effectiveness of sideguards in terms of mitigating pedal cycle casualties in London and in GB as a whole.

Take another look: Amey & Central Bedfordshire Council (DOP: 5/11)

Read document description

The Amey and Central Bedfordshire Council partnership launched its ‘Take another look’ campaign on 11th May 2011, which encourages car drivers to look thoroughly for motorcyclists whilst on the roads. By raising car drivers' awareness of motorcyclists, it aims to improve biker’s safety on the roads across the county. At the launch event on Wednesday 11th May, which coincided with the global launch of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, Central Bedfordshire Council, Amey, local organisations and individuals came together at Toddington Service Station on the M1 to demonstrate their long-term support. The 'Take another look' campaign saw the launch of www.seeingbikers.com, a website which provides information, research and the theory behind the reasons why motorists might not see motorcyclists on the roads. Factors such as ‘motion camouflage’, conspicuity and intentional blindness are explained and real life stories of local bikers that have lost their lives on the roads are used to bring home the message ‘Take another look’. The campaign was independently evaluated by the University of Bedfordshire and preliminary finding suggest that more than half of driver’s surveyed had seen the road side posters and it was ascertained that 54.4% recalled a message asking them to look out for bikers.
