THE BICYCLE IN THE URBAN TRAFFIC NETWORK

The purpose of the report is to present the current state- of-the-art of bicycle traffic planning and thereby assemble a body of information which can provide a basis for improving conditions for bicycle traffic. The report is primarily aided at the municipal bodies. The following major topics are examined in this report: The current situation and problems of bicycle traffic; planning for bicycle traffic; design and construction of an urban route network; classification scheme for intersections; laws and regulations; and, technical design. The importance of the connection between bicycle traffic planning and community planning is emphasized. In order to take into account the demands of bicycle traffic in physical planning, a comprehensive inventory is often required to clarify the current situation and problems of bicycle traffic. It is also essential that goals for bicycle traffic be specified.
