POSSIBILITIES FOR DEVELOPING FREEDOM FOR CYCLING IN SAFETY IN ESTABLISHED TOWNS AND CITIES

In seeking the optimum mix of travel modes it is necessary to consider a wide range of values in addition to environment, congestion, pollution and noise. Mobility, safety, freedom, health and convenience should be promoted and the cost of roads, cycleways, footways, crossings, vehicles, fuel and casualties should be considered. It seems probable that a larger proportion of cyclists, pedestrians and public transportation would prove economical and would reduce materially the volume of traffic and still accomplish the same journeys. Possibilities for developing freedom for cycling in safety are presented. /TRRL/ 234836.
