Cycling in Sydney Australia
Masaru Kiyota is at Saga university, and has done a number of papers on cycling. It is common in Japan for anyone to cycle on footpaths.
Section 9, Table 1, a metre matters.
Stephen, I wonder if you would re-post this in the General disussions as there has been considerable interest in the case of Pyrmont Bridge.
The following quote from the paper is interesting in regard to the current 10 Km/hr limit for cyclists on the bridge:
"It has been possible to demonstrate that bicycle speeds are declining with increased
pedestrian densities in the shared footpath. However, the perceived risk has not declined
with reduced bicycle speeds as shown by the analysis."
