AECOM's CycleCity Strategy provokes a paradigm shift in urban modal transport, founded on the benefits of cycling for the individual, the community, the economy and the environment.
The CycleCity Strategy proposes a new level of infrastructure for cyclists - a series of radial, fully-separated bicycle and pedestrian paths that are safe, fast, efficient and direct. Informed by established commuter patterns, these paths weave through existing urban conditions, utilising present infrastructure, open space, drainage corridors and backstreets.
NO EXCUSE ZONE
Based on a series of test rides, zones around the CBDs of major cities were mapped to measure the distance a healthy person can cycle within half an hour.
The maps are surprisingly far reaching and provocatively suggest that if a person lives within this zone and works in the CBD, then they should try cycling to work a few days a week and enjoy the benefits.
