Sustrans Design Manual Handbook for cycle-friendly design



Subject Keywords: Active Travel
Topic: Obesity
Type: Booklet
Region: United Kingdom

This document is part of a suite of technical design guidance on active travel being developed by Sustrans. There is much useful material already available from a range of organisations, and this guidance from Sustrans aims to provide detailed technical advice on key issues around on and off highway cycle infrastructure whilst signposting users to this developing library of further resources.
The Sustrans guidance library will be largely web based and will be regularly updated with new examples including the latest innovative and experimental schemes.
The full guidance will be structured to comprise:
• handbook for cycle friendly design
• main technical guidance document on designing for cycling, divided into chapters
• more detailed guidance on selected topics, both technical and relating to strategies, monitoring etc
• technical case studies
• media resources, including a photo library and training materials
• frequently asked questions
This handbook contains a concise illustrated compendium of technical guidance relating to cycling: it can stand alone as a ‘tool box’ of ideas but also links to a library of relevant on line resources. It is very visual but contains the essential technical details, and was inspired by earlier guidance produced by the City of Edinburgh Council.
