Coloured Surfacing for Safe Cycleways with NatraTex
Coloured surfacing is the perfect solution when it comes to separating different modes of transport. A clearly defined route keeps motor vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists away from each other to enable the free flow of all traffic. People and cyclists can also be directed via short cuts and can be steered away from the busiest roads. We are all being encouraged to be more aware of the type of journey we make, so do you really need to reach for the car keys every time you leave the house?
Designated Coloured Surfacing Routes for Cycling
Cycling has grown massively in popularity over the past decade. This is in no small part down to the success of professional British cyclists in major sporting events like the Olympic Games and the continental “Grand Tours”. Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas have all been victorious in the most famous cycling race in the world and the track success of Victoria Pendleton, Jason and Laura Kenny and Sir Chris Hoy, have all inspired a generation to get on their bikes. Not only are there health and environmental benefits, but it can be a fun and cheap way to travel around.
Under the Infrastructure Act 2015, the Government has set a ‘Cycling and walking investment strategy’ for England. This is the first of a series of 5 year strategies which support the long-term ambition to make walking and cycling the natural choice for shorter journeys by 2040. NatraTex coloured surfacing is the ideal alternative to resin bound surfacing to help make this target become a reality.
