Led by CIHT SoRSA, this webinar will provide an overview on cycle route design and the guidance set out in the Local Transport Note (LTN) 1/20. This webinar will include a Q&A session with Peter Leslie from AECOM.
Local Transport Note (LTN) 1/20 provides national guidance for highway authorities and designers and aims to help cycling become a form of mass transit in many more places. Cycling must no longer be treated as marginal, or an afterthought. It must not be seen as mainly part of the leisure industry, but as a means of everyday transport. It must be placed at the heart of the transport network, with the capital spending, road space and traffic planners’ attention befitting that role. The guidance delivers on Government commitment to boost design standards and improve safety. It sets out the much higher standards now expected and describes some of the failings common in the past, which will be strongly discouraged in future. The Department for Transport will reserve the right to ask for appropriate funding to be returned for any schemes built in a way which is not consistent with the guidance. In short, schemes which do not follow this guidance will not be funded.
This is primarily for SoRSA members of any role or level.
