The development of transport and society are inescapably interlinked. Is history really the history of transport, more than, say, the history of wars and kings, as some would have it? It is a tempting proposition.
The purpose of the toolkit is to aid decision makers in finding the best places to put new cycle infrastructure. CyIPT uses data about the existing road network, such as speed limits, road types and traffic levels combined with information about cycling levels to reccomend the Transport and innovation appropriate type of cycle infrastructure on each road in England.
CyIPT then attempts to group its recommendations into buildable schemes, and evaluate thoses schemes by estimating: Construction costs Increase in number of cyclists Benefits from increased cycling Benefit cost ratios You can contact us by e-mail at info cyipt.
Please do fill out our survey to give us your thoughts on where we should concentrate further development. Schemes The Schemes layer is an aggregation of the recommended infrastructure layer. Recommendations are made at the road segment level junction to junctionand therefore can be very short.
Schemes groups recommended infrastructure together into schemes that could possibly be constructed, and then evaluates the scheme against a range of criteria.
Transport and innovation are recommended for each segment based the following criteria: Whether the route is on road or off road e. Common infrastructure types are illustrated in the figures below: None Not shown no specific cycling infrastructure is required. Cycle Lanes A painted line on the roadway divides bicycles from other traffic: Cycle Lanes with light segregation Similar to cycle lanes but batons or armadillos are added long the line to reinforce the separation between cyclists and motor traffic: Stepped Cycle Tracks Cyclists travel on a slightly elevated lane, above the road traffic but below the pavement: Segregated Cycle Track Cyclists travel in a separate lane physically separated from motor traffic by a hard barrier: Cycle Streets These very quiet roads are primarily designed for cycling and walking while still allowing low speed motor traffic: Existing infrastructure The layer highlights existing cycling infrastructure.
Unlike other cycle maps e. OpenCycleMap which include designated cycle routes, this map only shows physical infrastructure such as cycle lanes and tracks. The modification will automatically be incorporated into CyIPT at the next rebuild.
The layer also gives the option to see the speed limit on each road.
Again, this data is derived from OSM and a cleaning algorithm to fill in missing data. Road width The road width layer shows and estimate of the road with based on the OSM. The calculation use standard lane widths and information on the number of lanes and footways to estimate the total width of the carriageway.
Width status The width status layer compares the estimated width of the road with any proposed new cycling infrastructure to width of the road as measured from the Ordnance Survey MaterMap. This mode helps highlight locations where road space is limited and space reallocation may be required to provide new cycling infrastructure.
Collisions are viewable a points, or mapped on the road and junction network. If the collision occurred at a junction, it is mapped to the nearest junction.
Otherwise, the collision is mapped to the nearest road segment. The STATS19 data has some ambiguity in the location of collisions; therefore it is possible that some collisions are mapped inaccurately to other nearby roads and junctions.We go your way.

And with 30 years' experience in the industry, you can trust us to get you where you need to be. As part of the Department for Transport’s innovation funding we are launching a new grant scheme, the Innovation Challenge Fund.
The purpose of the scheme is to help support and develop innovations that use or enable science, engineering and technology to address specified DfT policy goals.
The 32nd Annual Conference on Transportation Innovation and Cost Savings is the original, largest and most prestigious one day educational and networking event for shippers and supply chain practitioners in North America.
Over the past thirty years it has attracted manufacturers, carriers, intermediaries and distribution executives throughout. What is TRIP?
TRIP is a new program to identify and implement innovative ideas in transportation projects, processes and products. Innovation ideas should address transportation in .
challenge HackMacPark ( November) involved over 70 participants from corporate partners, students and monstermanfilm.com unique mix included equal parts students and professionals. Teams addressed one of two challenges: solutions to improve mobility and connectivity in Macquarie Park or solutions to enhance the vibrancy of Macquarie Park.
11 teams pitched solutions on the final day.
