  • New proposals aim to reduce danger on Bristol's roads

    22/11/2010

    A radical and proactive approach to reducing danger on Bristol's roads has been proposed following innovative research from Bristol City Council, NHS Bristol and the University of the West of England (UWE). The nine-month Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project looked at ways of reducing road danger, to make pedestrians and cyclists less vulnerable to harm, especially from motorised vehicles. A road danger reduction approach argues that the surest way to improve road safety is to reduce the volume and speed of motorised traffic, while also promoting walking and cycling as means as transport. The approach dove-tails well with the current emphasis on 20mph speed limits for residential streets currently being piloted by Bristol City Council.
