Cycleway planning and design

Providing for all ages and abilities


Walking and cycling networks are key components of low-carbon cities. Good walking and cycling infrastructure is safe, easy and attractive for people of all ages and abilities, and gives everyone a real alternative to private vehicles and public transport.  

MRCagney’s expertise in walking and cycling design extends from strategic network design to detailed design. Our cycleway design advice includes network integration, infrastructure design, and where and how to separate people on bikes from cars.   

Our low traffic neighbourhood planning integrates our experience in cycleway, walking, universal access, and street network design. Low traffic neighbourhoods make local areas safer for walking and cycling by reducing the number of cars in the area. 

Our cycleway design approach is supported by in the breadth of urban mobility expertise at MRCagney, which includes street design, universal access, public transport network and facility design and urban strategy. Cycleway design requires a deep understanding of the interaction of different types of road users and supporting street functions.  

We have an international team and maintain professional networks overseas that allow us to achieve a high level of skill and innovation.
