The Velobridge

This paper explores a range of issues relating to "velobridges" (bridges that are designed principally for cyclists). These issues include external clearances, the user envelope, loads and limit state criteria, deflections and dynamic behaviour, access and mobility, security screening, railings, kerbs and balustrades.

Using Predicted Bicyclist and Pedestrian Route Choice to Enhance Mode Choice Models

This research applies route choice models to predict the cycling and walking routes considered for a given trip, and the resulting route-level attributes are used to predict trip mode choice.
