The Rail Delivery Group is shortly to publish an updated version of the Cycle-Rail Toolkit. Train operators and Network Rail are delivering cycle improvements across the network, and this toolkit will help ensure that high-quality infrastructure is in place to support the anticipated increase in cycle-rail journeys.
The first Cycle-Rail Toolkit was published in July 2012 and was extremely well received by those implementing cycle-rail facilities across the rail network. This update seeks to enhance the work of the original by showing changes in best practice and lessons that can be learned. It also looks to good examples in other European countries such as Belgium and the Netherlands.
The toolkit will provide train operators with the knowledge to embed cycle-rail provision firmly within their business objectives by explaining how to provide for cyclists, how to encourage new users and how to promote and market their facilities to ensure that maximum benefits are gained. It will help to ensure that cycling to stations becomes easy and convenient and the natural choice for short trips to the station.
In preparation for its arrival I am putting a distribution list together. If you would like copies of the Cycle-rail Toolkit please provide me with the following details to address these to.
