What is cyclist and pedestrian infrastructure?
Cyclist and pedestrian infrastructure consists of items used to protect cyclists and pedestrians from impact on public roads. The infrastructure can be put in place to create safer cycle lanes and delineate roads for motorists. Cycle lane infrastructure has become quite common in city and town environments. Cycle lane systems can help to increase local bike use and create safer and more efficient traffic systems.
Cycling infrastructure can also include bike repair facilities. Bike repair stations provide convenient self-repair facilities for commuters, ideal for installation at public bike storage areas, college campuses and more. Bike storage facilities can also include specialised vertical bike racks to save valuable storage space in larger bike parking facilities.
Cycle storage facilities can also benefit greatly from bike shelters that will protect bicycles from harsh weather. Install shelters to cover outdoor bike parking setups and provide peace of mind for everyday commuters.
Where to install cyclist and pedestrian infrastructure?
Install cyclist and pedestrian infrastructure on busy public roads where cyclists and pedestrians may be at higher risk from vehicles. Cycle lane bollards in particular can be used on roadsides to effectively separate cyclists and vehicles. Install alongside driving lanes where cyclists can safely ride their bike. They are ideal in commuter areas where employees use bikes to get to and from work, school or college.
The Zebra Bicycle Lane Separator is made from 100% recycled plastic. These robust cycle lane separators can be installed on many road types and provide instant delineation. The highly visible design makes them easily seen by cyclists and motorists, day or night. They are robust enough for public areas and can survive impacts and weathering while being used.
A popular product for cycle lane delineation is the Cycle Max Bollard. This robust bollard has been fully tested and is ideal for British road use. The steel spring on the bollard allows it to bend on impact should it occur, reducing damage to impacting vehicles. The bollard uses a 480mm high reflective sleeve to alert cyclists and motorists to its presence. The bike symbols make them perfect for using on at public cycle lanes.
