CYCLING - WHAT HOPE FOR GROWTH?

Despite low usage at present, a poor public image and some difficult topography, a detailed study suggested that there was a good case for promoting cycling in West Yorkshire. A pilot demonstration project was proposed for Normanton, where transport conditions indicated that the bicycle could do much to improve accessibility for carrying out everyday activities. The physical planning and engineering measures required to make cycling safer and more convenient were shown to be simple, relatively inexpensive and likely to yield a favourable return on investment. The success of the project would depend mainly on marketing and implementing the plan in such a way that it had the full support of the general public, all local road users and the agencies involved in planning and operating the transport system.(a) (TRRL)
