5 German Institute of Urban Affairs Difu – Sebastian BührmannTIDE Workshop Stuttgart Cluster non-motorised transport What is it about? Simply transport or much more? n Active mobility n Health n Compact cities n Climate protection n Social contacts n Quality of public space n Quality of life  Essential ingredient for the transformation of cities  Often wide agreement („a good thing“), but tricky when it comes to specific „innovative“ measures Photos: Jörg Thiemann-Linden

6 German Institute of Urban Affairs Difu – Sebastian BührmannTIDE Workshop Stuttgart Walking Audit s Where does it make sense? s How to convince decision makers to support walking audits? What benefits are in for them? s Which tools to apply in your situation? Recommendations for starters, climbers, forerunners? s How to institutionalise audits of public space? s Possibilities for data collection on pedestrian traffic.

7 German Institute of Urban Affairs Difu – Sebastian BührmannTIDE Workshop Stuttgart Bike-pedestrian conflicts n What are „hot spots“ of conflicts in your cities? Where does it work well to mix? n Basic strategy – what works? s Separation of pedestrians and cyclists? (Move cyclists on the road?) s Mixing – shared space & co. s Encourage mutual respect – edcuate people s Controls and sanctions n Can pedestrians and cyclists become allies for neighbourhood mobility? n Planning principle: 1. Pedestrians – 2. Cyclists – 3. Motorised traffic (from the edge to the centre) – is this becoming mainstream? Photo: Jörg Thiemann-Linden

8 German Institute of Urban Affairs Difu – Sebastian BührmannTIDE Workshop Stuttgart Accident risks pedestrians and cyclists n Conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians of little significance in accident statistics. n Pedestrians involved in only around six per cent of all accidents in which cyclists were injured. n Around 15 per cent of accidents in which pedestrians were injured involved a cyclist. n In more than 60 per cent of accidents involving both groups, the cyclist is the main cause. Mainly collisions caused by cycling at inappropriate speeds and abrupt changes in direction. n Normally, severity of the accidents is low n Pedestrians clearly bear the risk of being hurt in an accident. n Besides that – numerous conflicts without injuries as common sources of anger and hostile environment between cyclists and pedestrians

9 German Institute of Urban Affairs Difu – Sebastian BührmannTIDE Workshop Stuttgart Use of sidewalks? German ERA-Standard 9 Pedestrians and cyclists in peak hour Avoid mixed use of sidewalks by cyclists and pedestrians Mixing possible Available width (m) Share of cyclists not more than a third of all sidewalk users when high usage

10 German Institute of Urban Affairs Difu – Sebastian BührmannTIDE Workshop Stuttgart Bike parking n Key barriers in your city? n „Hot topics“: s Space (esp. in high density areas) s Location (cyclists are not willing to walk very far) s Theft/Vandalism s Quantity (esp. when bicycle use is growing, or big events) s Quality s Costs s Stakeholders/ cooperation models s Arguments for bicycle parking (e.g. customers of local businesses benefit) n What could be an appropiate strategy for your city?
