Task 5.2: implementing cycling and walking measures in your city

Number of replies: 6

Think of a recent measure that was implemented in your city/region that supports walking or cycling.

  1. Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?
  2. Has the measure’s impact on congestion been evaluated after implementation? If yes, how do the figures compare to those presented in this unit? If not, which are the obstacles to do so?

Recently impplemented measure that supports walking: widening the sidewalk with implementation of tactile tiles and ramps on junctions

  1. Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?

The major concern was to remove barriers for impaired people and for parents with baby strollers, but also to increase attractivenes of sidewalks and to prevent cars to occupy the space related to pedestrians.

There is no data about impact on congestion. There are no relevant data to compare with.

1.     Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?

The major concern was, for example for walking, finding routes to replace the transport routes where they were turned into pedestrian paths and to find ways to prevent cars from occupying the pedestrian area.

We do not have data about impact on congestion. There are no relevant data to compare with.

Recently measure that was implemented in my city that supports walking:

Establishment of pedestrian street zone in one part of the street

  1. Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?

         Major concerns were traffic safety and noise reduction in that street and settlement. That was the decision of the city decision makers.

      2. Has the measure’s impact on congestion been evaluated after implementation? If yes, how do the figures compare to those presented in this unit? If not, which are the obstacles to do so?

The implementation of this measure didn t cause congestion since the people change their travel route.

Task 5.2: Implementing cycling and walking measures in your city.

Think of a recent measure that was implemented in your city/region that supports walking or cycling.

1. Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?

Implementation of 30 km/h lanes in main city streets. The main concern was road safety for cyclists, since car drivers were not used to coexist with them in main city roads. Fortunately, the measure is working well in the city and we have not had major problems.

2. Has the measure’s impact on congestion been evaluated after implementation? If yes, how do the figures compare to those presented in this unit? If not, which are the obstacles to do so?

No, it has not been evaluated. Maybe because we are not used to do it.

building 20 km of bicycle tracks

1.     Prior to implementation, which major concerns were brought up, and by which stakeholders in your city or region?

             The major concern was traffic safety.

2.     Has the measure’s impact on congestion been evaluated after implementation? If yes, how do the figures compare to those presented in this unit? If not, which are the obstacles to do so?

             No, it has not been evaluated. We do not have relevant data about this masure.

In Lyon we have many projects that are interesting. For example, the street Garibaldi was before a car-dedicated streets, with low-passes (tunnels), small sidewalks, no cycle tracks, no PT equipments. There is now large sidewalks, cycle lanes, PT lanes, and fewer car lanes.

I never saw any evaluation about this project (perhaps a few data about traffic drop ?). I suppose 2 arguments can be found about why those evaluations are not made :

- Cost and time : it's always an issue unfortunately

- The new project is well accepted in the city, so I suppose they see no need to defend it afterwards.
