A comparative analysis of cyclists’ paths through shared space and non-shared intersections in Coventry, England

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper investigates the impact that road design may have on how cyclists ride through intersections. Using video observations of two intersections in Coventry, England, one shared and one non-treatment, an analysis of the paths taken by cyclists examines the variation in the paths ridden through the non-treatment intersection as compared to the shared space intersection. The results of this comparative analysis indicate that a significant proportion of observed cyclists ride similarly through both shared and non-treatment intersections. These findings indicate that shared space designs may not influence cyclists as the design theory itself states.
