John Parkin’s presentation will compare and evaluate international principles and practices for designing for cycle traffic. It will set design for cycling in the wider context of public realm design, traffic planning, traffic engineering and traffic management. It will draw on UK, Dutch, Danish and North American principles, and provide an understanding of how effective design can create efficient transport systems that support economic vibrancy, social activity, and environmental sustainability. To ensure the creation of attractive and comfortable infrastructure for cyclists, a key theme will be the importance of understanding that a bicycle is a vehicle capable of speed and that it is important to make provision separate from provision for other road users.

Phil Jones’ presentation will be about the Wales Active Travel Act, what it is meant to achieve, what the experience has actually been and the forthcoming revision to the Statutory Design Guidance.
