1 Walking and Place 19 th March 2015 Planning Walking Facilities The Approach in Wales Andy Mayo

2 Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 Landmark Welsh law to make it easier for people to walk and cycle in Wales

3 Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 Legal requirement for local authorities in Wales: to map and plan suitable routes for active travel to build and improve infrastructure for walking and cycling every year to promote walking and cycling as a mode of transport By connecting key sites such as workplaces, hospitals, schools and shopping areas with active travel routes, the Act will encourage people to rely less on their cars when making short journeys.

4 Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 Design Guidance - Steering group Welsh Government, Sustrans, Disability Wales, Guide Dogs, WLGA, Living Streets, Sewta, local authorities and transport consultants Contents - Part A - Introduction, legal and policy frameworks, consultation - Part B User needs, planning and design - Part C Related facilities Part B - methodology for developing network maps and the recommended design tools for delivering high quality networks

5 Planning for Pedestrians most roads already have footways; there are also many miles of footpath, bridleway and other paths used by pedestrians. The problem is mainly one of quality and suitability of the existing network, particularly for children and people with a mobility impairment, rather than one of providing new networks. Guidelines for Providing for Journeys on Foot, CIHT 2000.

6 Walking and Cycling Similarities & Differences Similarities: - Healthy, sustainable, low cost - Similar destinations - Vulnerable road users - Network requirements direct, coherent, safe, attractive, comfortable Differences: - Distances walking short (5 minutes / 500m) Cycling longer (can be 10km+) - Speeds - User needs - Infrastructure requirements

7 Evidence Base - Similar Travel to work data Existing flows Road Network Hierarchy Local knowledge network map School catchment areas Road Casualty Data Analysis Trip Attractors

8 Cycle Network Planning Assess the data Desire lines as routes

9 Route Audit

10 Proposed Cycle Network

11 Walking is Different We are not really planning new walking networks. What we are mostly doing is identifying where we should be focusing resources on improving the existing walking environment.

12 Welsh Government - Recommended Approaches to Planning for Walking 1. Attractor zone approach 2. Funnel route approach 3. Footway condition approach 4. Combination of approaches

13 Recommended Process - Planning for Walking

14 Example - Bridgend

15 Bridgend

16 Network Planning in Bridgend Bridgend Pencoed Wales Average Travel to work by train (%) 733 (3.4%) 214 (5%) 15,316 (1.29%) Travel to work by bus (%) 445 (2.1%) 49 (1.2%) 62,322 (5.25%) Travel to work by car / van / taxi (%) 15,985 (74.1%) 3,323 (77.8%) 732,338 (61.73%) Passenger in car / van / taxi (%) 1,707 (7.9%) 271 (6.4%) 106,256 (8.98%) Travel to work by bicycle (%) 238 (1.1%) 46 (1.1%) 16,389 (1.38%) Travel to work by motorcycle (%) 122 (0.6%) 31 (0.7%) 8,888 (0.75%) Travel to work on foot (%) 2,217 (10.3%) 269 (6.4%) 122,732 (10.35%) People who work mainly from home (%) ,323

17 Trip Attractors

18 Schools and Colleges

19 Consultation Trip origin and destination points Desire lines

20 Bridgend - Attractor Zones

21 Highest Scoring Attractor Zones A C B E F D G H

22 Town Centre Attractor Zone

23 Town Centre Attractor Zone - Funnel Routes

24 Town Centre Attractor Zone - Areas to Audit

25 Site Audit Work

26 Welsh Government Design Guidance

27 Walking Audit Tool Who is the tool for? - Local authority officers/contractors - Stakeholders e.g. local walking or disability groups What can be audited? - Existing routes - Proposed routes What is a pedestrian route? - Any link used by a pedestrian but in this context particularly those identified through the pedestrian network planning process

28 Role of Audit Tool Comprehensive assessment Raise standards Consistency across Wales Requires riding the routes Aid to identifying improvements Accessibility of tool = meaningful input of users

29 Walking Audit Tool

30 Example - Directness Gaps in traffic/ crossing delay (where no controlled crossings present or if likely to cross outside of controlled crossing) Score = 0 >15 sec Score = 1 <15 sec Score = 2 <5 sec

31 Scoring Pedestrian Route Any route which scores less than 28 out of a potential 40 points, (i.e. a score of 70%) will require further improvement before it is included in the Existing or Integrated Network Maps the Welsh Government require all local authorities in Wales to produce.
