2015 Finalists for Best Cycling Network Strategy

Mini-Holland in Waltham Forest - LB 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. This overarching vision aims to: Substantially increase cycling within the borough and to make it an attractive and mainstream mode of transport. Shift a significant proportion of short local car trips to the cycle. Improve the look and feel of public spaces. Stimulate economic regeneration. Improve actual and perceived safety for cyclists. Encourage physical activity and reduce the burden of preventable diseases.

WINNER: Southwark's Cycling Strategy - Southwark Council

Southwark Council adopted its new cycling strategy Cycling for Everyone in June 2015. The council has a clear vision for cycling in the borough, that cycling will be for the many, not the few – the natural choice for getting from A to B, with attractive, accessible, connected routes that do not involve sharing the road with large vehicles or fast moving traffic. The strategy sets out a delivery plan and cost estimates to show how this policy will be implemented over the next 5 years. 

COMMENDED: Bristol Cycle Strategy - Bristol City Council

The Bristol Cycle Strategy was published in February 2015. The purposes for producing the Cycle Strategy were to set out approaches to encourage more people to get inspired to cycle, to demonstrate intentions to consider cycling in all work areas in the Council and to provide long term aspirations and priorities to attract new sources of funding. Bristol are already working from a good baseline of cycling, which sees over 7% of people cycling to work. 

Greater Dublin Area Cycle Network Plan – AECOM

The project was completed in 2013 and published in April 2014 and set the challenging task of developing a strategic cycle network for the Dublin City, Fingal, South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown and Wicklow areas, known as the Greater Dublin Area.  This plan was aimed at increasing this further and taking cycling to Northern European levels of usage over the coming 5 to 10 years, an ambitious but in the context of over 100% growth over the last 5 to 10 years achievable.

Cycle-Rail - Growth and Delivery - ATOC

This strategy is successfully delivering the single largest increase in cycle-rail provision in Britain in recent years. This is being achieved through a programme of activities delivered by a partnership between the Cycle-Rail Working Group (CRWG), administered by the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC), and individual Train Operating Companies (TOCs). The CRWG is a voluntary group comprising ATOC, Network Rail, TfL, DfT, Passenger Transport Executive Group, Passenger Focus, RSSB, English Heritage and the UK Cycling Alliance.

Portsmouth - A City to Share - Portsmouth Cycle Forum

Portsmouth Cycle Forum, a voluntary campaign group, launched a cycling masterplan for Portsmouth called, ‘A City to Share’ in November 2014. The strategy was developed in response to a challenge from the leader of Portsmouth City Council, Cllr Donna Jones, for the Cycle Forum to come up with a better plan for transport in the city.

A City to Share was designed to be an ambitious but realistic cycling strategy, one that could be picked up by the local authority as-is, adopted and implemented. It sets out a vision of a city where cyclists and pedestrians who live, work, study and visit Portsmouth can be safely accommodated alongside drivers.
