Project Description

The proposed study is the first comprehensive study in Australia that combines academic, government and community efforts to enhance cycling activity while addressing safety concerns. The study takes an innovative, multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the issues contributing to cyclist injury with a particular focus on the urban road environment. The proposed study will develop new road designs which will improve the urban cycling experience. Australia's first cycling simulator (BikeSim) will be built as part of this study and will be used to safely evaluate the new road prototypes which will be designed to improve cyclist safety and maintain the efficiency and mobility of vehicles.
