RETROFITTING BICYCLE LANES ON EXISTING EOADS

AMENAGER DES PISTES CYCLABLES SUR DES ROUTES EXISTANTES

The article recognizes that congestion affects metropolitan areas around the world and identifies as perhaps the main reason to that the increased use of private vehicles to link origin to destination where public transit fails to provide the preferred flexibility, particularly over short distances. An alternative to both car and public transit to be considered is the bicycle. This article looks at proposals put forward for a network of 3,000 km (1,835 mi) of retrofitted bicycle lanes on existing roads in Victoria, Australia. This project, 'Bicycle Victoria', has measured and analyzed 20% of the roads under consideration and has demonstrated that there are feasible engineering options for retrofitting bicycle routes to the existing road network.
