Urban Motorcycle Design Handbook

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 17:15

This Urban Motorcycle Design Handbook from Transport for London (UK) sets out the key highway design requirements for motorcycle safety in London and has been developed with valuable input from stakeholder groups. Using this Handbook will lead to a better understanding of how road and traffic conditions affect motorcyclists and how risks can be reduced and hazards minimised for this vulnerable road user group. The key design issues for motorcyclists are: 1) Factors affecting grip; 2) Issues around visibility; 3) Road-side features; 4) Traffic calming; 5) Filtering. The aim of this handbook is to enhance understanding of the issues for all concerned with the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of London’s streets or with any schemes that affect the highway.
