UK cycling organisations to team up with Dutch infrastructure experts for street design workshop

London Cycling Campaign (LCC) have confirmed that Transport for London (TfL) and Dutch infrastructure experts will join forces this week for a street design workshop. 

The aim is to look at how an important central London location can be redesigned to Go Dutch standards, and as a consequence, improve cycling safety. 

The workshop, which has been organised by LCC and the Dutch Embassy, will also welcome experts from the Dutch Cycling Embassy as they sit down to make Lambeth Bridge and its southern approach cycling and walking friendly.

The results of the workshop, which lasts for the full day, will be revealed at the Love London, Go Dutch conference on Thursday 18th October 2012 where Transport Minister Norman Baker, TfL director Ben Plowden and LCC chief executive Ashok Sinha will also speak. 

Sinha said: “We’re delighted Transport for London has accepted our invitation to take part in this Go Dutch workshop, and we’re looking forward to the expert contribution they will make to an important  and in-depth discussion of how to make this London location safe and inviting for everyone.

“We think this is the first time British and Dutch engineers have come together in this way to propose joint cycling and walking solutions for a problem location in the capital.”
