UpcomingQLD Bike Week Event

  • 02/05/2018
    5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

You are invited to join us for an industry update on the latest Cycling & Walking Technical Publications, including both those recently released and currently under development.

This seminar will be a fast-paced, multi-topic event, with 6 presentations of 10 minutes each – providing something for everyone! These will be presented by experts in the specialised field of bicycle and pedestrian transportation. Topics will include:

  • Options for Designers of Pedestrian and Cyclist Bridges to achieve value for money,
  • Cycle Streets & Advisory Lanes (Local Area Traffic Management),
  • Fencing treatments for bicycle paths (including temporary fencing),
  • Cyclists safety at captured left turn lanes (weave-right issue),
  • Including Cycling Facilities as part of Road Pavement Rehabilitation and Resurfacing Projects, and
  • The effective use of pavement markings to reduce conflict and improve safety.

This event is being sponsored and hosted by WSP with speaker coordination by Michael Langdon, Senior Advisor (Cycling and Walking), Queensland Department of Transport & Main Roads.

Presenters:

Kendrick  Benson – Cyclists safety at captured left turn lanes (weave-right issue)

There are two typical road conditions where a bicycle rider is required to ‘weave right’ and may be exposed to a crash risk: (1) where the kerbside lane becomes an exclusive left-turn lane approaching an intersection, requiring a bicycle rider to weave across at least one lane of traffic to proceed straight ahead; or (2) where a bicycle rider wishes to turn right on a multilane road and must cross one or more lanes of traffic to do so (usually to access an exclusive right-turn lane). This presentation will give a brief overview of the issue and treatment options available.

Tara  Herley  –  Including Cycling Facilities as part of Road Pavement Rehabilitation and Resurfacing Projects

In road resurfacing and pavement rehabilitation projects, re-linemarking is also required. During the re-linemarking process instead of just replacing ‘like with like’ there are often opportunities to make minor reconfigurations to the road at minimal or no additional cost. Resurfacing and pavement rehabilitation programs present opportunities to systematically consider how cycling facilities can be the incorporated into maintenance work. This presentation will give a brief overview of how this has worked across Queensland and the processes involved.

Prue  Oswin  –  Fencing treatments for bicycle paths (including temporary fencing)

Fences and barrier treatments are used to protect cyclists and pedestrians from hazards after preventative measures such as removing, relocating or reducing the risks from hazards have been considered. However, if inappropriately or unnecessarily applied the fence itself can become a hazard and an unwarranted expense. Designers should ensure the hazard being introduced reduces the overall risk to path users and poses less risk than the hazard being treated. This presentation will give a brief overview of current issues, the risk assessment and treatment options.

Jerryn Zwart –  Cycle Streets & Advisory Lanes

Bicycle Advisory Lanes and Cycle Streets, are retrofit bicycle priority treatments for low speed and low traffic streets – a form of Local Area Traffic Management (LATM). There is currently no Australian Standard that provides specific guidance on this topic, however several authorities across Australia are currently implementing them. Technical Guidance is currently being developed to ensure safety and consistency of application. This presentation will give a brief overview of the issue and treatment options available.

Stuart Rothwell  – Options for Designers of Pedestrian and Cyclist Bridges to achieve value for money

Grade separation is always the most expensive component of any transport infrastructure project. A recently developed Technical Guideline provides guidance on options for designers and assessors of pedestrian and cycle bridges, particularly with respect to achieving value-for-money in a whole-of-life context. This presentation will give a brief overview of the guidance and new developments and innovations in Pedestrian and Cyclist Bridges.

Michael Langdon  – The effective use of pavement markings to reduce conflict and improve safety

This presentation will showcase the innovative use of pavement markings to reduce path user conflict, improve safety and performance of mixed-use paths. This will draw on recent applications across Brisbane, showing the latest innovations in pavement markings and demonstrate how pavement marking can be used effectively to complement traditional signage.
