Improving the design of the roads and streets as well as the broader built environment is vital to allow and encourage cycle use.

ICE has created this briefing sheet to provide information for engineers and planners on how cycling infrastructure can be effectively designed, planned and integrated into our towns and cities.

The information and links collated in this report are not extensive, but provide direction to much some of the guidance and information available to transport infrastructure professionals for planning, designing and delivering cycling infrastructure in the built environment. Some of the guidance also makes reference to providing for walking.
