TMS Consultancy has been engaged by West Sussex County Council to train highways staff with respect to safe design of cycle schemes.
Twelve staff from Highways, Development Control, and Road Safety teams attended a one day course on 13 July. The course, which provides a day’s CPD for staff, covers areas including cycling policy, barriers to more people cycling and a collision investigation of a cycling issue.
The main part of the day looked at recently produced design guidelines, including the London Cycle Design Standards, together with case studies of innovative cycle schemes.
A second phase of the training is due in the early part of the Autumn 2016.
