Local Transport Note 1/12

TSO (The Stationery Office)
Price: £38.00

Shared use routes are designed to accommodate the movement of pedestrians and cyclists. This Local Transport Note (LTN) 1/12 Shared Use Routes for Pedestrians and Cyclists focuses on routes within built-up areas where the predominant function of the route is for utility transport, and where use by pedestrians and cyclists is likely to be frequent.

Shared use schemes require careful consideration. This LTN:

  • provides advice on their planning, design and provision

  • suggests a scheme development process to help in deciding whether shared use is appropriate for any given situation

  • stresses the importance of high-quality inclusive design that addresses the needs of all users

  • places particular emphasis on involving users, residents and other stakeholders in the design process.

This LTN 1/12 supersedes LTN 2/86 Shared Use by Cyclists and Pedestrians. It should be read in conjunction with LTN 2/08 Cycle Infrastructure Design (DfT, 2008b) and Inclusive Mobility - A Guide to Best Practice on Access to Pedestrian and Transport Infrastructure (DfT, 2002a).
