Changes to the guidelines l.jpg
Changes to the Guidelines

  • Cyclist’s Dynamic Envelope

  • Maintenance

  • Advanced Stop Lines (ASL’s)

  • Side Road Crossings

  • Access Control

  • Invisible Infrastructure






Maintenance l.jpg

  • Create a maintenance hotline

  • Inspect by bicycle

  • Budget early

    for maintenance

This handy maintenance checklist will be included


Advanced stop lines asl s l.jpg
Advanced Stop Lines (ASL’s)

  • No adverse impacton traffic capacity

  • Results in 25-35% accidentreduction

    for cyclists

  • Inexpensive

Slide37 l.jpg
No.

(the long answer: it depends)

Invisible Infrastructurerefers to the idea that:

  • Traffic Reduction

  • Traffic Calming

  • …are more effective than “visible”

    cycle-specific improvements.
