Achieving Separated Cycle Facilities in a Constrained Town Centre Environment
Keywords: Shared Cycle Paths
Submission Date: 2017 Conference: ARSC
The Woden Town Centre is entering a new phase of devleopment. To support and encourage active travel modes through the precinct, robust designs were prepared for cycling facilities on the key roads through the Town Centre. The designs sought to maximise safety through separated facilities and coordinated treatments that directly benefit pedestrians and cyclists – facilitating ease of movement and encouraging increased walking and cycling. In addition to being pragmatic and able to be implemented in the short-term, the designs also had to negotiate challenging urban constraints and eight government stakeholders.
