Encouraging Walking & Cycling

We have a strong interest and expertise in walking and cycling based on extensive experience of policies and interventions to maximise the take-up of these genuinely sustainable modes of transport. 

This experience has included:

  • A 3 month study visit and discussion of policy with Danish transport researchers and professions
  • Two years secondment to the Ministry of Transport of the State of North Rhine Westphalia in Duesseldorf, Germany
  • Three consultancy trips to Australia at the invitation of state and federal government to advise on how to increase walking and cycling in a very car dependent society
  • Advisor to the Lancaster Cycling demonstration Town project which is committed to doubling cycling levels over a 3 year period

Harvesting the many benefits of walking and cycling for health, climate change, liveable cities and fiscal prudence requires:

  • Detailed work with citizens to identify barriers and remove them
  • Detailed attention to improving infrastructure
  • Detailed attention to reducing the volume and speed and intrusiveness of car traffic
  • Detailed attention to road safety
