CYCLISTS GET THEIR OWN WAY IN BEDFORD

The author describes the cycle network envisaged by the bedford urban transportation study which proposes 24 km of cycle/pedestrian track, 15 km of cycle priority route and 19 signal-controlled crossings. The need for the system was proved by analysis of home interview survey data and figures are given. Various types of cycle priority routes are examined and interaction with pedestrians and buses briefly discussed. The use of signal-controlled crossings is explained and details are given of track widths, construction, lighting and carriageway marking. Recommendations are made for the provision of parking and areas for further investigation outlined. /TRRL/
