Empirical approach

Use Temporary Traffic Orders to construct trial lanes/ layouts. Test and evaluate these, then modify if necessary and make permanent once designs are finalised and have become familiar to road users. 


Why the contribution is important

A "Try then Modify" approach allows quicker implementation and immediate safety gains, plus much more infomred community engagement, as people can comment on real road adaptations with which they have live experience.

    "make permanent once designs are finalised" - Or, get rid of them when it is shown that as many as 2 bicycles a day use them whilst they cause tens of tons of additional artificially generated congestion emissions.....
