‘Design Details for Cycling’ taught by Lucy Marstrand
Urban Design London are a non-profit organisation that focuses on supporting London based environmental professionals to help promote the creation of well-designed spaces. To this end, one of the services they provide is the hosting of frequent training events.’ Design Details for Cycling’ is one such upcoming event and particularly special to Project Centre as our Healthy Streets Advisor, Lucy Marstrand, is the speaker.
This two-part course provides comprehensive training on the design and delivery of healthy streets for cyclists by focusing on the new Cycle Route Quality Criteria. The first day will provide attendees with the understanding and application of good cycle scheme design parameters and how to determine the correct degree of separation between cyclists and other road users. The experts leading the course alongside Lucy include Phil Jones, chairman of transport planning organisation PJA, and Gordon Webster, TfL’s Walking & Cycling Technical Specialist.
Lucy will focus on the different impacts of design on different demographics where she will help to unpick highways of engineering conventions and highlight who might be included or excluded when we design roads. As a member of the steering group for the national cycle design guidance, LTN 2/08, she will outline the thinking behind the more inclusive design standards which will hopefully be included in the brand new LTN 1/19.
We are very excited for Lucy to be leading the session alongside such contemporary specialists and hope that the attendees take full advantage of the impressive knowledge base on display. We are also eager to see the new outcomes for cycling in London the course will undoubtedly cause with a new wave of specialists.
