Amongst TRI staff there are specialists in fields important to walking and cycling: street design, design of new developments, road safety analysis and design, and transport policy development and analysis. Our experience in the field has been gained in consultancy and in research and demonstration projects. For example, TRI is (2015) a consultant to City of Edinburgh Council on its Street Design Guidance, which aims to make street design and maintenance much more friendly for pedestrians and cyclists.
In a CIVITAS city demonstration project funded by the EU, TRI is overseeing the evaluation of cycling infrastructure and bike sharing schemes in various EU cities, and in another EU project, CHAMP, it evaluated the impacts of cycling promotional measures in leading cycling cities in Europe. TRI coordinated the first major EU project on walking, ACTIVE ACCESS (www.active-acces.eu) and has also explored the health impacts of promoting utility walking via a GP's surgery. Finally, it has just gained a new project to examine and model pedestrian crossing behaviour in various Middle Eastern cities. TRI is therefore well placed to develop and carry out consultancy and research in the increasingly crucial field of Active Healthy Mobility.
