Safer cycling in the urban environment
The importance of cycling to achieve sustainable transport and national health goals is recognised by governments nationally and internationally. Bicycles are an environmentally sustainable mode of transport that can generate significant health, environment and economic benefits, when substituted for car travel. Despite the many benefits of cycling, cyclists are physically vulnerable road users, especially when they share the road with motorised vehicles…

Survey participants may be asked to participate in a follow up study where they will attach video cameras to their bicycle to record their cycling trips for up to two weeks.
Knowledge translation is a major component of this research program. We are committed to enhancing the interface between research and policy, and promoting evidence-informed policy. The findings of this study will be published in international peer-reviewed journals, with the outcomes being widely disseminated throughout the nation and international cycling and road safety community.
Safer cycling in the urban road environment: study approach and protocols guiding an Australian study
The proposed study will use existing cyclist crash data along with unique cyclist exposure data to develop road infrastructure prototypes that improve cyclists’ safety and evaluate the effectiveness of these prototypes in a cycling simulator.
