Cycling and Pedestrian Surveys

Cycling and Pedestrian Surveys

People travelling under their own power in urban areas has grown dramatically in most cities and towns over the last 10 years. In London for example, over half a million cycle journeys are undertaken each day. Rising fuel costs and commuter congestion has driven this trend but urban planners have enabled it with better facilities and integrated transport systems.

Transport planners rely on accurate surveys and reports about non-motorised users to ensure that the infrastructure can support future trends effectively and safely.
