We're moving...

Well, Rob is. The TI centre of gravity moves north as 'our Man in the East' moves from Peterborough to the Lincolnshire Wolds. Interestingly he's still about the same degree east as he was before.  

Repurposing Roadspace

As traffic levels fall due to COVID-19 many foreign cities are taking unused road space from motor traffic and making it available for people walking or cycling. Why not here? Under our highway legislation you can't just do it, our Mark Strong provides a handy guide:-  

Steve at Cycle County Active County Conference 5/6 Sept

Steve (behind a nameplate that said Mark Strong) spoke on our work with Hertfordshire particularly experiences in using the Route Selection Tool. The RST's ability to compare two largely similar routes is not much help where the network is braided and contains routes with very different characters.

Mark, Bike Share and the CIHT magazine

If you read the CIHT's Transport Professional magazine (geeky we know) the May edition contains a review of the UK bike share scene written by Mark Strong. Bike share feasibility is a TI speciality.

Feasibility Study for Guildford Bike Share

Working in partnership with Urban Movement we've been looking at the feasibility of bike share in Guildford. A small scheme based at the University of Surrey was launched summer 2018 which has had higher than expected use. We used our bike share experience to prepare a business case for funding, as well as developing outline proposals for docking station sites.   Details...

Northwest Active Travel Conference

The North West Active Travel Network conference in Manchester on 10th October featured Steve talking about access to town and city centres. From a historical and traffic management perspective his key message was that focussing on cheap and easy car access leads to the "strip mall" rather than the strong town centres that many policies believe.  


Steve & Rob along with Esther Jones from Support Staffordshire and Donna Hemus, our translator, have recently completed the Waterfall Country Tourist Traffic Management Study. This was a multi-faceted project bringing together footpath branding, altering the "product" and local buy-in to solve an ostensibly tourist parking problem.
