2015 Finalists for Best Cycle Network Infrastructure Project

A3 Oval Triangle - Major Junction Improvement - Transport for London, Outcomes Delivery

The A3 Oval Triangle Road Space Management (RSM) scheme area includes A3 Kennington Park Road junctions with A23 Kennington Road, A23 Brixton Road, A3 Clapham Road and A202 Camberwell New Road junctions with Harleyford Street and A23 Brixton Road. The scheme area was identified as a location for the RSM program following a safety investigation which identified 50% of all collisions resulting in injuries to cyclists. The lack of cycle provision at the end of bus lanes and approach to major junctions encourages the left turn hook collision between cyclists and left turning vehicles. The existing facilities are inadequate to cope with the current volume of 5K+ cyclists daily and anticipated growth of cycling trips.

Queen's Circus - a new roundabout concept to separate cyclists and motorists - Transport for London, Outcomes Delivery

During Transport for London’s (TfL’s) investigations into innovative design solutions for the provision of cycle facilities, lead by Outcomes Delivery, which came about as a result of the Better Junctions Safety Reviews in 2012, a new design concept was developed for roundabouts. This concept enables designers to provide cyclists with their own dedicated lanes and signals approaching and throughout the circulatory without having to merge with general traffic whilst still managing the general traffic flows through the network. Wandsworth Council are the first highway authority to implement this new concept, with the majority of funding provided by the Battersea Power Station Development Company & Chelsea Bridge Wharf.

WINNER: Lewes Road Scheme, Brighton & Hove - Brighton and Hove City Council & Mott MacDonald

The Lewes Road Cycle Scheme involved significant reallocation of road space on a busy 4.5km dual-carriageway in order to accommodate improved cycle facilities and enhanced priority for buses.  The scheme is most well-known for its introduction of 14 floating bus stops along the route which remove the previous conflict between buses and cyclists that was often seen as a significant barrier to cycling. Lewes Road (A270) is an important part of the City’s road network, linking the city centre northwards to major employers and destinations including: two universities, the Brighton & Sussex Medical School and the Amex Community Football Stadium and beyond. 

City of London's Two-way cycling Network - City of London 

Our aspiration is to make a two-way cycling universal network across the City’s highway. By doing so we have helped to achieve: Improved safety by providing alternative route to some of the busiest streets; Improved local access for cyclists; Reduced journey distances and times for cyclists; Provided more route choices; and Encourage new people to cycle. Over the last five years the City has introduced over 70 cycle contra-flows. This equates to 90% of all one-way streets being made to two-way for cyclists in the City. The remaining 10% of one-way streets are tied up in major redevelopments.

Exe Estuary Trail - Devon County Council

The Exe Estuary Trail is a largely off-road cycle and walking route that extends over 16 miles to connect Exeter Quay, at the heart of the city of Exeter, to the coastal towns of Exmouth and Dawlish. Running parallel to the estuary-side railway lines, the route provides a valuable commuter function connecting over 80,000 residents along the trail as well as an attractive, accessible and family-friendly leisure route. A trail in its own right, the Exe Estuary Trail also forms part of a number of regional, national and international routes which attract visitors from across the continent.

WINNER: Leicester Cycle City Action Plan - Leicester City Council

Leicester Cycle City Action Plan sets out strategic aims, priority areas for investment and approaches to key challenges and targets as part of the Connecting Leicester Vision. It is an illustration of what Leicester Cycle City aim to do to encourage more citizens into cycling as well as attracting and directing investment opportunities. Included are proposed programmes of work to 2018 and 2024. This includes delivering infrastructure, training, engagement and promotions across the city to help make cycling safe, simple and more attractive.  Aiming to meet government targets of a 10% modal share for cycling by 2024.

Mini Holland - Walthamstow Village  - London Borough of Waltham Forest

As part of the ‘Mayor’s Vision for Cycling’, London’s outer boroughs were invited to submit proposals to transform cycling infrastructure and encourage people to take to two wheels. Waltham Forest was one of the successful ‘Mini-Holland’ boroughs with a programme that comprises a set of integrated schemes that will not only deliver vast improvements in safety and convenience for cyclists, pedestrians and all other highway network users, but also incorporate imaginative public realm enhancements to support residential and shopping areas, ease public transport overcrowding and reduce pollution, traffic congestion and parking pressures.

Cycle Superhighway Route 2 Extension - Transport for London

Cycle Superhighway Route 2 Extension was the first of London’s Cycle Superhighways built to be substantially segregated and reallocates significant lengths of road space specifically for the use of cyclists for approximately 2km. Delivered in line with the “Mayor’s Vision for Cycling in London” it was in fact designed prior to this, demonstrating that it was an innovative and bold step forward for TfL in the delivery of higher standard cycle facilities closer to international best practice. The Cycle Superhighways Programme represents a key part of TfL’s Surface Transport Business Plan to reach this target, seeking to provide safer, faster and more direct cycle journeys.
