COMMENDED: National Propensity to Cycle Tool - Centre for Diet and Activity Research, MRC Epidemiology Unit

The National Propensity to Cycle Tool (NPCT) is being developed as part of a DfT funded study. It will provide an evidence based approach to support planners deciding where to prioritise cycling spend. The NPCT is open source and implemented in the statistical programme language R. In Stage 1 of the project, in just 6 months, an advanced prototype based on four cities has been developed (Coventry, Leeds, Manchester, and Norwich).  In Stage 2 of the project will develop a full national model.

The Hackney Parklet scheme, reclaiming the road – Cyclehoop

Cyclehoop Parklets are a modular, low-maintenance and eco-friendly design turning car parking bays into spaces for public leisure helping to reclaim the road for pedestrians and cyclists. These new pocket park spaces will give the streets a cost-effective makeover and improve the environment for local residents. The parklet is made of small lightweight components that are built in southeast London and assembled on site therefore reducing costs.

Orca – new Cycle Lane Separator  - Rediweld Traffic Products

For over 20 years Rediweld has been developing traffic products made from recycled materials. Light segregation is just one way of improving safety for cyclists and reducing accidents. It requires physical objects intermittently placed along the inside of a cycle lane marking, to give a higher degree of separation. The principle being that the cyclists are protected within a cycle lane but not trapped. This has been achieved with a concave face on the cycle lane side, to guide the cyclist back into the cycle lane and so reduce the risk of injury.
