As more and more people take up cycling, cycle paths are becoming increasingly popular, which is a positive development: cycling is a healthy, sustainable, and efficient mode of transport. There are, however, some inherent risks to this development: paths that are too crowded give rise to the possibility of unsafe situations, reduced traffic flows, and inconvenience to cyclists. CROW-Fietsberaad – the Dutch Bicycle Council – has therefore asked DTV Consultants to conduct research into how cyclists perceive road traffic intensity and bicycle lane width. Based on the findings of our research, CROW aims to adjust its recommendations for desired bicycle path dimensions in its Bicycle Traffic Design Guide.
