Cycle Infrastructure Design (DfT 2008)
We hope the following helps steer you through Cycle Infrastructure Design (CID), highlighting its most useful and welcome guidance, but also alerting you to some areas that are less than perfect. This briefing is by no means exhaustive, however - it is not intended to be a substitute for reading the guidance itself!
The Department for Transport (DfT) published CID in October 2008. It brought together guidance from a number of draft Local Transport Notes (including LTN 1/04, 'Policy, Planning and Design for Walking & Cycling' and draft LTN 2/04 'Adjacent and Shared Use Facilities for Pedestrians and Cyclists').
It also updated and revised 'Cycle Friendly Infrastructure' (CFI), published by CTC and endorsed by the Dept of Transport, the Bicycle Association and the Institution of Highways & Transportation in 1996.
CID was published jointly by the DfT, the Scottish Executive and the Welsh Assembly Government. It is primarily aimed at local authority transport practitioners.
