Fewer consultations, more action
By now, everyone should be aware of the main barrier to greater uptake of cycling in urban areas - lack of safe, segregated space. This has been demonstrated in many different surveys in different populations at different times.
We therefore have little need for further consultation, engagement or idea generation - the basic principles of what is required are well established. We need to see these principles implemented on the ground, and quickly. This is fundamentally a matter of political will.
Why the contribution is important
Consultation paralysis is an all too real phenomenon. It is too often undertaken in preference to concrete (literal and figurative) action in situ. We need to get past this and work from these already clearly established principles.
