    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Lots of interesting stuff about inclusive transport regarding trains, buses, cars, public realm, streets and yes a bit about cycling too. Quotes:

    Shared Space:

    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

  • Lime Lane, Breadsall

    Created by Ian Dent // 0 threads

    There is developer interest in building houses on the existing arable land. Lime Lane (west end) is currently completely unsuitable for cycling. East End with off road cycle route is good. The developer should be encouraged to extend the existing cycle route parallel to Lime Lane to the junction with A608 and then, using a suitable crossing, to NCN.

    Suggested route from Handyside Bridge to Darley Abbey on west side of river Derwent. Will link Darley Abbey to city and provide an important segment of the Derwent Valley Cycleway.
