DfT Policy Paper - Inclusive Transport Strategy
Lots of interesting stuff about inclusive transport regarding trains, buses, cars, public realm, streets and yes a bit about cycling too. Quotes:
8.11 While we consider CIHT and DPTAC’s recommendations and how to take them
forward, we are requesting that local authorities pause any shared space schemes
incorporating a level surface they are considering, and which are at the design stage.
We are also temporarily suspending Local Transport Note 1/11. This pause will allow
us to carry out research and produce updated guidance.
Objectives regarding Cycling:
• Update Local Transport Note 2/08, which sets out the Department’s guidance to
local authorities on designing safe and inclusive infrastructure for cyclists, to take
account of developments in cycling infrastructure since its publication in 2008 and
the responses to the draft AAP consultation and publish a revised version by early
• By 2020, explore the feasibility of amending legislation to recognise the use of
cycles as a mobility aid71 in order to increase the number of disabled people
Kerb needs to be dropped
The kerb needs to be dropped lower. Though already dropped, the height is such that it will oftern pop my pannier when I mount the kerb.
Dangerous infra fail Clyde Gateway A728/Dunn St
Protected space for cycling Eastbound along Clyde Gateway, it's marked along the footway, too narrow but not bad. Then reach the junction with Dunn St and the cycle path joins the carriageway and immediately in conflict with a huge sweeping left turn filter lane. This is terrible, dangerous design.
Polmadie Bridge to be demolished!
Glasgow City Council have confirmed that Polmadie Bridge is to be demolished as it cannot be repaired. This imperfect but important link from southside has been severed; makes a mockery of Commonwealth games legacy routes.
New South Glasgow Hospital bike parking needed
More cycle parking needed: the racks at the entrance - as limited as it is - overflowing with bikes.
