Among the twelve upgrades the DCF have suggested include a segregated cycle network for Dundee. The Dundee Cycling Forum has launched a manifesto of proposed changes to the city’s infrastructure.

They hope the list will promote active travel around the city and make it safer for cyclists, pedestrians and children.

Among the 12 upgrades they have suggested include a segregated cycle network for Dundee, more cycle storage and a drive for more ‘up-to-date design guidance’ to be followed for the streets.

Other changes include more 20mph speed limits, improving pedestrian accessibility and reducing car use.

Discussing the introduction of ‘low traffic neighbourhoods’ and ‘play streets’, the manifesto said: “Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) are neighbourhoods that allow access by car, but only to people who live or are working there – motorised through-traffic is stopped via “modal filters” (often bollards) which still allow people to walk, wheel or cycle wherever they like.

“This creates a safer, quieter neighbourhood for residents whilst encouraging active travel.

“Likewise, Play Streets allow residents to close their street to motorised traffic (apart from residents), with children allowed to play freely and safely there – just like they used to!” How to get the latest news from DundeeLive DundeeLive brings you the latest headlines from Dundee and beyond.But did you know you all the ways you can stay informed with us?You can get our top stories sent straight to your inbox with our daily news updates.
