… These design assistance tools should be used in conjunction with ATE scheme review tools.

Crossing selector tool

Provides a range of suitable design options when considering how to connect walking, wheeling and cycling routes over a main road between 2 side roads.

Route cross-section tool

Assists in confirming whether a corridor is suitable for different kinds of active travel infrastructure, given constraints such as carriageway width.

Both tools are based on national guidance such as:

  • Cycle infrastructure design LTN 1/20
  • Inclusive Mobility: making transport accessible for passengers and pedestrians
  • Manual for streets 2007 and Manual for streets 2010
  • existing street assessment tools, such as Cycling Level of Service (appendix A in Cycle Infrastructure Design LTN 1/20 and Healthy Streets
  • best practice and further evidence
