Cycle-friendly design and planning: Overview
Cycle lane
CTC's vision is to see people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities feeling able to cycle safely and confidently for all types of journey. Designing - or re-designing - neighbourhoods, town centres and road networks to cater properly for them is essential...

Advanced Stop Lines (ASLs)
ASLs help cyclists at junctions
Advanced stop lines are an excellent way of giving cyclists visible priority at junctions, where around 70% of cyclists' collisions occur. Good design is crucial, of course.

Vegetation and hedge trimmings
Mending a puncture
Cyclists have problems with overhanging vegetation or hedge trimmings left on the routes they use. Debris can cause punctures or even serious injury if it gets caught in wheels...

Contra-flow cycling (2-way cycling in 1-way streets)
Contra-flow street
Allowing cyclists to ride two-way in one-way streets makes cycling more convenient and attractive...

Road maintenance and lighting
Cyclist reporting defect to CTC's www.fillthathole.org.uk
All road users benefit from good road maintenance and effective lighting. Cyclists, however, suffer more than most from defects in the surface, and councils don't always light cycle paths.

Cycle parking (Campaigning view)
Cycle parking sign
It goes without saying that when people cycle somewhere, most of them will need a secure, convenient place to lock their bike for a while when they get there. Lampposts, railings or gutter pipes are simply not good enough.

Cycle lanes, tracks and shared use footways
Shared use footway
Cycle lanes, cycle tracks or shared use footways separate cyclist from traffic to varying degrees. Are they always a good thing?
10 April 2012 - 3:02pm
Vehicle restricted areas (VRAs)
A town or city centre that restricts motor vehicles helps create an attractive environment for walking and cycling. Visitors, shoppers and residents usually feel the benefits too. Exempting cyclists is unlikely to cause problems because they tend to ride slowly or dismount when it gets crowded.

Home Zones
Chester Home Zone
Children play, or want to play, in streets; and people work and live in them too. Creating Home Zones is a good way to reclaim roads as community space, rather than just a means of getting from A to B in a motor vehicle.
5 April 2012 - 12:05pm
Traffic calming
The speed of motor traffic not only aggravates local communities, but also puts people off cycling. There are a number of measures that encourage and enforce slower driving, including physical traffic calming (e.g. speed humps).
2 April 2012 - 12:47pm
Junctions and crossings
As 75% of cyclists' collisions happen at or near junctions, it's essential to do everything possible to make them safe for cycling.
