Virtual Cycling Infrastructure Design Training
Taking into account the latest Government recommendations regarding social distancing and working from home regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision in conjunction with the trainers that this course will now be delivered via distance learning. The course will still have all the course work, workshops and interactivity as those delivered in the classroom, allowing for the same level of learning while taking into account the recommendations for these special circumstances. There will be a live trainer facilitating this course from 9:00 – 17:00 GMT.
This course explores different approaches to making cycling feel convenient and safe in urban areas, illustrated by case studies of innovative cycle infrastructure design. We will help you to understand how to plan networks and interventions to suit different circumstances. We will show the best available methods for designing for cyclists at junctions, main roads and quieter streets.
Cycling is quickly becoming established as a mainstream mode of transport, especially in our larger cities. All the evidence point to its benefits: quicker journeys in urban areas, improved access to jobs and services, reduced congestion, better health and liveability. Getting more people, of all ages and abilities, onto bikes is a key ingredient in the recipe for delivering better, more competitive and more progressive cities.
Retro-fitting high quality cycling infrastructure is a significant challenge for engineers. Restricted space, UK driving rules and culture and political support are key challenges.
National design guidance, engineering standards, and cycle infrastructure design good practice are considered in-depth, with topics presented by experienced practitioners in the field of cycling
At the end of the course, participants will have:
• An understanding of the policies underlining cycle infrastructure design and provision
• An understanding on how to set out a network plan, appraisal of individual project and prioritisation
• Understand the role of consultation and participation with stakeholder and communities
• An understanding of the range of cycle infrastructure options available and how it is applied in the UK and internationally
• Understand user requirements for cycle infrastructure and facilities
• A clear understanding of how to apply cycle infrastructure design principles on the ground effectively
• An understanding of the role monitoring and review plays in the delivery of a ‘fit-for-purpose’ scheme
• A firm understanding of the importance of maintaining cycle facilities and infrastructure
