Cycle Infrastructure: Design Guidance and Best Practice (SEStran)
Design and best practice guidance to help local authorities, developers and others involved in providing new cycling infrastructure, whether specifically for cycling or for taking cycling into account for all forms of transportation infrastructure. The guidance provides basic information about cycle auditing and monitoring that can be used to help identify measures to improve a particular infrastructure scheme, a route or part of a network for cycling based on five key principles – coherence, directness, attractiveness, safety and comfort. It also provides basic information about surfaces for both on-road and off-road cycle infrastructure provision.
