Pedestrians & Cyclists – Thinking, Planning and Designing
This course aims to help managers, planners, practitioners, engineers and other interested professionals improve outcomes for pedestrians and cyclists.
The main objectives of the course are to:
- Inform of the latest policies, decision-making frameworks and methodologies
- Provide detailed advice on planning and design practices for pedestrians and cyclists
- Advise on systemic actions to further include pedestrians and cyclists in our transport system
There are three options to take the course – participants could attend:

Participants will be introduced to the important role of walking and cycling in our transport system. They will be informed of foundational policy, decision-making frameworks and methodology for including pedestrians and cyclists.
Participants will learn about planning tools and practices for pedestrians and cyclists and will visit a site to discuss practicalities of walking and cycling planning. Pedestrian and cyclist facilities are discussed.
Following Day 2 exercises, detailed design practices for pedestrians and cyclists at intersections and midblocks are discussed. An assignment is presented to help participants practice their learnings during the course.
