We have an exciting programme of evening seminars usually held in Central London (most near Baker Street) as well as online webinars. Next seminar:
LCDS meets a real live borough: how new analysis tools can be used to evaluate and plan cycle networks, 6:30pm, Tuesday 8th December
Booking now open here.
Mark Strong from Transport Initiatives will talk us through the Mesh Density and Area Porosity Analysis tools, found in the London Cycle Design Standards. These haves been used in Southwark to identify current gaps and plan to address these. Mesh Density looks at the spacing of cycle routes while Area Porosity looks at the size of areas surrounding by barriers to cycling (like main roads) and whether these are easy to access by bike. Mark will discuss the principles behind the tool, the steps involved in carrying out an analysis, and provide a couple of examples that those attending can try out. There will also be time for questions and discussions about how the tool fits into cycle network planning.
Also, why not look at resources from our previous 23 seminars available here?
