Designed for Cycling

Petitioning for a green route to Heysham - 30 Jul 2014 - Case Study
Lancashire cycle campaign group Dynamo has been successfully drumming up public support for a proposed green cycle route to connect Lancaster to Heysham.

 
 
Nearly 100 people from the Leighton Buzzard area have come together to demand that the council invest more funds in better provision for cycling in the town.

 
 
The Commons Transport Select Committee's inquiry report on Cycle Safety has been published, endorsing many of CTC's recommendations.

 
 
New designs out for consultation show that the quality of design for cycling infrastructure has shot up. The new route, which parallels one of London's busiest distributor roads, will now be almost entirely protected from traffic, with generous widths and good continuity.

 
 
The Lincoln Eastern Bypass has been delayed because of concerns over cyclists' safety. CTC Lincolnshire had objected to the road because of the failure to deal with cyclists' needs adequately.

 
 
£2bn announced for new roads or bigger junctions - with almost none on cycling. Meanwhile, the Department for Transport has announced £15m for 2015-16 to be spent on cycle rail improvements, typically additional cycle parking at railway stations.

 
 
Maximise the economic benefits of cycling, CTC tells the Northern Ireland Assembly.

 
 
CTC isn’t taking sides on whether or not to build HS2 Phase 1 (the proposed high speed rail line between London and the West Midlands), but we do want to make sure that cyclists get the best deal out of the project.

 
 
Over 70 people attended CTC's Space for Cycling campaigners' conference in Leeds on Saturday 3 May 2014. Here below are the presentations and workshop notes from the different sessions.
