Reallocating Road Space in Response to COVID-19

The behavioural changes forced on people by the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and travel rules have drastically changed the demand for how the roads should be used in the near and longer term future.
Cycling and walking are likely to be much more popular forms of transport as lockdown restrictions are eased. It is important that changes are made to road space usage to allow for the increased demand from cyclists and walkers to be adequately provided for and encouraged.

A38 Junctions

The planned work to replace the A38 roundabouts with flyovers will cause massive congestion for the 3 years of development. We’ve been talking with Highways England and others about how to ensure good quality cycle facilities in the finished project and also how best to encourage people to cycle during the years of traffic congestion.

Air Quality

Derby City Council have addressed air quality issues by removing cycle facilities. We’ve been campaigning against this locally and nationally.

International Women’s Day

According to Love to Ride’s 2019 Cycle September report, in Derby just 22% of participants were female compared to a national average of 50%.

A small group of us at DCG wanted to change this and support, encourage and empower more girls and women to cycle, and beyond so we created a campaign for International Women’s Day 2020.

Borrowash Basin Birthday Party

After waiting a year for a dangerous hole on a cycle route in Borrowash to be fixed by the local developers (Taylor Wimpey), a small group of DCG members decided to commemorate the anniversary by holding a birthday party for the hole.

After some local and national press coverage, the hole was co-incidently fixed within a few days.
