Minimum Design Parameters for Cycle Connectivity

Source: New Zealand Transportation Agency

The research used data from video surveillance of 1,245 cyclists at 19 locations in New Zealand. The research quantifies the minimum width of usable space that should be provided at pinch points to ensure most cyclists will pass a pinch point without entering into conflict with the motorized vehicle stream. This research determined a relationship between the remaining lane or shoulder width and the likelihood of cyclists traversing the edge line into the motorized vehicle stream.
