Streets & transport in the urban environment guidelines... 2016

The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) has developed and published a range of guidelines

May 14 2016

The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) has developed and published a range of guidelines based on research work carried out over the last couple of years to assist street and transport professionals in implementing 'Manual for Streets'.

There are four publications in the guidelines series:
  • Involving the public and other stakeholders - guidelines to encourage and enable practitioners to engage more effectively with the people who stand to be most directly affected by any street scheme

  • Planning for walking - guidelines describing the characteristics of pedestrian journeys, benefits of walking, factors that discourage walking and how they can be overcome, legal framework that applies to pedestrians, and the ways that plans and strategies for pedestrian travel are developed

  • Designing for walking - guidelines describing how infrastructure for walking should be designed to provide a good quality walking environment

  • Planning for cycling - guidelines describing the cycling characteristics, behaviour and trends in the UK, benefits of cycling, current conditions and challenges for cycling, strategies and plans for cycling, planning networks and routes for cycling, promoting cycling, monitoring and evaluation of cycling schemes, and more information on planning for cycling.
