Ros Poulos Julie Hatfield Raphael Grzebieta Andrew Mcintosh Chris Rissel Funded by an ARC Linkage Grant, with RTA, Bicycle New South Wales, Sydney South West Area Health Promotion Service and Willoughby City Council. Safer cycling; A partnership project to better understand cycling patterns, hazards and incidents
Aims To provide much needed data to inform policy and planning for safer cycling: Measures of cyclist crash, near miss and injury rates for different infrastructure types Identify factors that contribute to crashes, near misses and injuries Assess the feasibility of Hazard Reporting System designed in collaboration with Willoughby Council
Study overview 2,000 cyclists will be enrolled to participate over a one year period During 6 survey weeks (Wks 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48) enrolled cyclists will complete daily reports of trips: How far? How long? When? Where? Type of infrastructure? Details of any near misses, crashes, or related injuries? questions addressing incidents since the previous survey week, and topics relevant to cycling safety We will also conduct interviews with enrolled cyclists who experience crashes a series of detailed engineering safety audits on a subsample of crash locations.
Want to be involved? If you are a cyclist and interested in being part of the study, please contact Dr Susanne Murphy The project also offers exciting opportunities for suitably qualified persons wanting to undertake a higher degree by research (PhD or Masters by research). Interested persons should contact Dr Ros Poulos
