E-course 'Bicycle friendly intersections: from Dutch to the world'
Can Dutch concepts be and approach to sustainable and equal traffic management? Our colleagues Rico Andriesse and Luc Prinsen, together with Carolin Kruse (Managing Director and Mobility Consultant at Fair Spaces) will give you all the insights during the e-course "Bicycle friendly intersections: from Dutch to the world", starting May 30th.
About the course
The online course Bicycle Friendly Intersections from Dutch to the world offers a space to approach the complex topic together with others, generate ideas and make contacts. The following questions are answered in the course:
- How do bicycle friendly intersections fit into networks with all modes of transport?
- How can traffic management be used to make intersections safer, more efficient and more bicycle friendly?
- How do I design a bicycle friendly intersection based on the Dutch model?
- How do bicycle friendly intersections affect pedestrian traffic, car traffic and public transport?
The redesign of intersections that are safe for cycling and walking and can be used intuitively is one of the elementary tasks to strengthen local mobility. Many cities have thus taken it upon themselves to review and improve their intersections.
"By the end of the course, I had already started to mentally redesign the intersections from my municipality that are currently being discussed, using the approaches I had learned."
