Mobilising Mobility: Cycle Highway Innovations

In this webinar we heard about recent innovations in the development of cycle highways.

We heard about the lessons learned from a project which recently concluded, the CHIPS project (Cycle Highways Innovation for smarter People Transport and Spatial Planning). This project developed and promoted cycle highways as an effective and cost efficient low carbon solution for commuting towards and from urban employment poles.

We learnt about different tools available to help regions and mobility stakeholders to monitor performance and evaluate impacts of cycle highway networks. We will also hear about the launch of the new Dutch Cycle Highway wayfinding standards, focusing on the process in the areas of design, alignment with current wayfinding, stakeholders and executed research, that all together led to new standards for cycle highway wayfinding in the Netherlands. 


The webinar was moderated by Dr Maria José Rojo Callizo.

Featured speakers included:

  • Joris Van Damme (Provincie Vlaams-Brabant)
  • Joost de Kruijf (Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas)
  • Lisette Hoeke (Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas)
