PJA webinar on Government’s Gear Change plans

Cycle lane

PJA’s Phil Jones and Adrian Lord, who were key advisers on the Government's £2 billion cycling and walking plans, will hold a webinar this Friday (July 31) to discuss the impact of the plans on local authorities, highway engineers, urban designers and consultants.

The active travel experts advised the Department for Transport (DfT) on how to design the thousands of miles of higher standard, protected cycle routes set to be built in towns and cities, which will be monitored by a new inspectorate called Active Travel England.

Jones also helped to author the strengthening of the Highway Code to better safeguard pedestrians and cyclists and improve legal protections for these vulnerable road users.

He said: “The announcement of the cycling and walking revolution is very exciting news and we’re pleased to be playing our part.

“Safer road conditions will encourage more people to cycle and walk, in turn reducing congestion, traffic noise and pollution while creating more liveable and friendly neighbourhoods.

“New clear design standards will also help bring consistency across the national road network. This will assist local authorities and highways engineers when designing roads and junctions, including in new developments.”

Jones and Lord will be joined by Rachel Aldred, Professor of Transport at the University of Westminster, to discuss the Government’s plans in the webinar. It takes place 1pm to 2.30pm on Friday. Pre-register here.
