Positive 2008 with Best Designs from DofT

Let's start 2008 on a positive note, by sharing a document recently passed on to Darlington Cycling Campaign for consultation. It is the Department of Transport's collection of good designs for cycling infrastructure, and contains a remarkable number of examples of the kinds of design we advocate for Darlington.

Until we received this document, we were lead to believe that such things as cycle lane priority at crossings with roads was a dream only possible in Denmark, Holland or Germany. But there it is, on the cover of the document, a junction in Cheltenham.

If you'd like to read the whole document, you can download a PDF version here.

You can also download a Word version of the Cycling Campaign's response here.

We look forward to seeing some of these fine examples in our Cycling Demonstration Town in 2008.

Happy New Year to you all!!
