This two-day course has been developed in consultation with Highways England, to provide up to date information on a range of subjects related to designing schemes for pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders, including those with visual or physical disabilities/impairments.
The course serves as a brief introduction to the DMRB Requirement and Advice Document HD 42/17: Walking, Cycling and Horse-Riding Assessment and Review. Published in May 2017, it supersedes HD 42/05: Non-Motorised User Audit and the subsequent Interim Advice Note 143/11: Supplementary Advice and Requirements for the Provision for Non-Motorised Users and Accessibility.
HD 42/17 is applicable to the whole of the motorway and all-purpose trunk road network in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Participation on the course will assist those wishing to understand some of the competencies set out in HD 42/17: Table 3/2 - Lead Assessor Competencies. The course is therefore suitable for those responsible for designing schemes on the motorway and trunk road network.
This two-day course provides a brief introduction to the DMRB Requirement and Advice Document HD 42/17, Walking, Cycling and Horse-Riding Assessment and Review.
