Active travel in new developments
This website provides evidence on active travel provision and potential in and around planned and proposed development sites.
Explore the sites we’ve studied.
A range of factors influence ease of access by walking and cycling. Distance to key destinations such as workplaces is relevant, but equally important is the type of roads that must be followed and the presence or absence of good quality walking and cycling infrastructure.
For case study sites, we have investigated measures affecting modal choice. These include the ratio of journey times/distances to local destinations by car as compared to by bicycle, the busyness of the roads, and the circuity of the routes. We have also studied access to public transport nodes such as rail stations.
