Chester is one of the second group of 'Cycling Towns' that has received funding from Cycling England to get more people cycling.

Steer Davies Gleave are helping to develop and improve the cycle network in Chester and tackle the barriers to cycling.

Our role

The Cycle Chester initiative is a 3-year programme of improvements that will develop cycling infrastructure, training and participation. Steer Davies Gleave was commissioned to prepare a Masterplan that will improve the accessibility of Chester city centre for cyclists and contribute to doubling the number of cyclists over the next two years.

How we did it

The Chester Cycle Masterplan includes the development of new cycling routes that will help to improve access to the city centre and priority for cyclists at key junctions. The infrastructure improvements were based on evidence of existing problems and issues that were observed during cycle audits carried out by the team.  It includes:

  • Proposals to introduce contra-flow cycling along one-way streets
  • Improving safety on key routes into the city centre
  • Increasing visibility and priority of cyclists at junctions
  • Improvements to cycle parking which will make access to key destinations easier

As part of the Cycle Masterplan we also:

Worked closely with both Cheshire West and Chester Council and stakeholders (including Chester Cycle Campaign) to develop proposed cycle improvements
Spoke to other Cycle Towns to provide best practice on developing cycle design standards

Developed principles for the location and specification of cycle parking facilities

Developed outline costs for the infrastructure schemes that we have developed
Undertook an audit of cycle signage and made recommendations for location and specification of new cycle signage

Provided advice on how to embed cycling into the policy framework to ensure that cycle improvements will continue to be made as part of development related transport investment

Advised on alternative sources of funding that may be used to deliver the cycle masterplan
