London 'Mini-Holland' schemes a success, report finds

Joe Robinson 26 Jun 2018 First research into 'Mini-Holland' schemes show increases in cycling and walking in effected boroughs The controversial decision to incorporate 'Mini-Holland' schemes across London boroughs has seen an uplift in cycling and walking according to the first study into their impact. One year after implementation, the 'Mini-Holland' schemes are said to have increased walking and cycling by 41 minutes a week per person in the boroughs which use such road systems compared to those that do not. Surprisingly, the study conducted by the University of Westminster found that although the schemes focus mainly on allowing safer routes for cycling, the schemes predominantly saw an increase in walking with 32 of the 41 minutes being made up by foot. However, the proportional increase was higher for cycling which experienced an 18% rise. See related Lock it or lose it: Reformed bike thief's advice could stop your bike ...
