LTN 1/20 is out

Postby atlas_shrugged » 28 Jul 2020, 5:07pm

LTN 1/20 is out. This replaces LTN02/08

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... n-1-20.pdf

It has the NL guidelines of:
Directness
Attractiveness
Safety
Coherence
Comfortable

So that is a good start.

It has lots of good stuff in it. I'm surprised no one has commented.

And in the key points, it suggests that people who design cycle facilities should actually have experience of cycling on their local roads. From my experience, that is not the case in my area. Big learning opportunity for the Highways Engineers.

This is an excellent idea, however I can’t believe it’ll be possible to get many highway engineers out on a bike who don’t already.
