Low-cost infrastructure treatments for low cycling countries
Facilitated by Dr Glen Koorey, ViaStrada, New Zealand
Do you have to spend lots of money to get more take-up in cycling? This workshop explores the options available for countries with limited cycling budgets to develop low-cost safe cycling routes and networks. The three-hour session will be a mix of short presentations and simple group exercises.
Topics to be covered include: the role of painted cycle lanes, “light” separation options, options for reallocating street space, sharrows and advisory bike lanes, speed management, trial treatments, low-cost intersections and crossings, neighbourhood greenways and ‘bicycle streets’.
Confirmed speakers include Glen Koorey (ViaStrada, Christchurch NZ), Jennifer Dill (PSU, Oregon US), Tim Judd (GTA, Perth WA), Michael Langdon (TMR, Brisbane QLD), Tim Hughes (Transport Agency, Christchurch NZ).
Using bikes of all kinds for deliveries
Facilitated by Dr Marilyn Johnson, Monash University, Australia
The gig economy has transformed the world of work. This, coupled with an increasing desire by some organisations to operate sustainably and adapt to increased pedestrianisation of major city streets has led to the rise of the use of bicycles and similar vehicles for delivery. This phenomenon raises questions relating to the types of bicycles in use, e.g. cargo bicycles, which are designed to carry far heavier loads than traditional bicycles and which may place a higher demand on the rider in terms of handling. They may not fit in traditional bicycle facilities, either.
This workshop will explore current and future potential uses and associated safety implications, not only to the riders, but for business operators and other road and path users. Facilitated by Dr Marilyn Johnson, Monash University.
