Building Blocks

Think of transport infrastructure as a house. The component parts are items such as bricks, windows, and tiles. The quality of the finished product will be dependent not just on the quality of the components, but also how they are put together. This article will describe some of the important component parts of Dutch system infrastructure that are relevant to cycling, but not how the component parts are put together.

The Problem of the Priory Road / Bristol Road Junction

Priory Road Junction with Bristol Road

A major pinch point for pedestrians and cycle users just to the south of Birmingham city centre is the two junctions where Priory Road crosses Bristol Road and Pershore Road. On Sat 17th Jan, I attended a meeting at the junctions organised by Gisela Stuart MP in response to calls from local residents to have the junctions improved to make them safer for all users. This article lays out the solution I envisage for these junctions, arguing for high-quality segregation at both junctions, based on design ideas from TfL.
