CHAPTER 6: PUBLIC POLICY ON THE GREEN MODES. FROM THE GREENING OF URBAN TRANSPORT, EDITION 2

This chapter argues that the principal reasons for the overall decline in walking and cycling stem from a lack of appreciation of the latent demand for these modes and their relevance to the determination of a sane, equitable and sustainable transport policy. Allied to this, has been an erroneous perception of the benefits of giving priority to walking and cycling in policy and practice, and defining and adopting a strategy to that end. But the necessary measures that need to be taken to reflect their importance -- higher residential densities and lower scales of provision, pedestrian and cycling impact statements, continuous green mode networks uninterrupted at road intersections, the imposition and proper enforcement of much lower speed limits, and so on -- require a far more ambitious approach than has been proposed to date.
