In this lecture, Brian Deegan and Richard Pearson will examine the successes and failures of the £100 million London Cycle Network project and discuss the standard of the highway engineering schemes delivered.
By highlighting areas where changes could have been made to improve the delivery of the project, it is hoped that lessons can be learnt for the future. The design approaches of each of London’s 33 local authorities were cross-referenced against cycling growth and pedal cycle collisions. From the analysis, the project is shown to have had a positive impact on promoting cycling growth in central London but little identifiable impact on collisions.
The paper that forms the basis of this presentation won the Richard Trevithick Memorial Fund at the 2017 ICE Annual Awards Ceremony. The paper, published in Municipal Engineer Journal, is available to read online.
