Squaring the Circle – Designing High Quality Cycling While Adding Traffic Capacity – Chris Kennett – Chris Kennett Consulting

The construction of a new university campus in Peterborough posed a major problem for transport planning: how to provide the highest standards of walking and cycling links to the campus, while accommodating the associated increase in vehicle traffic? And all on the edge of a major City Centre. The scheme took a ‘blank page’ approach to re-imagine the local road network, with walking and cycling at its core – but guided by detailed iterative traffic modelling in Linsig throughout.

The design incorporates direct LTN1/20 cycleways, parallel crossings and features such as ‘hold-the-left-turn’, while providing a whole new road network to efficiently deliver drivers to their destinations. This paper explores the process followed to achieve it and the lessons learned along the way.
