When will cycling be a ‘grown up’ mode?

10 December 2013/Categories: PTRC News


I’ve also always spent some of my working week on development planning as well as cycling work. With a few honourable exceptions, the approach to cycling in new development is often pretty dismal. The private sector doesn’t really want to create ‘highway’ space that can’t be sold on, while local authorities don’t want to adopt high quality finishes with a future maintenance liability. Consequently public space, cycle routes and cycle parking in new development, where we have a chance to really do something good, is often shoe-horned into spaces that can’t be used for anything more profitable.
