Designing for Cycle Traffic compares and evaluates international principles and practices for designing for cycle traffic. It sets design for cycling in the wider context of public realm design, traffic planning, traffic engineering and traffic management. Coverage includes: (1) principles for design to ensure inclusivity; (2) planning processes for cycle route networks; (3) design approaches, including capacity calculations for links and junctions, roundabouts and crossings, and signal control; and (4) modelling and level of service assessment approaches. Each chapter is extensively illustrated, provides a concise overview of the topic, and includes an introductory overview and summary of chapter highlights. Written in an accessible style by an established international authority, Designing for Cycle Traffic is essential reading for students, designers and planners in the fields of traffic and highway engineering, spatial and transport planning, architecture and urban design.
