Flashback Friday: Cycling in London – More Pictures

Currently I’m working on a couple of interesting and somewhat related projects. One is some research looking at how ways to reallocate road-space (e.g. remove a traffic lane for a cycleway…) can reduce vehicle-kms travelled. The other is to develop some national guidelines for how you can introduce “modal filters” and other ways of restricting through-traffic in local streets. It calls to mind some of the clever things like this that I saw when I visited London eight years ago – and reported on it in this blog post originally from April 2015

There was plenty of cycle-friendly infrastructure to see even in my limited time around London. So here are a few extra pics of some of the more interesting sights (click to enlarge them):

It was a bit of a mix of on-road and off-road cycleways – sometimes both

A short section of two-way separated cycleway
A clever two-way cycle crossing into Hyde Park but cars can only exit

Simple contra-flow cycling allowed on this otherwise one-way street
A slightly more formal way to achieve contra-flow cycling
Shape of the future? A stylish bike and a car-club (shared) motor vehicle
A shared space for everyone to enjoy – cars are guests
Clever bike parking

Next stop: Bristol!

Could some of these also be used in Christchurch?
