Abstract

Whitehall Primary School in Easton, Bristol has recently benefitted from improvements to its walking routes as part of the Sustrans Links to Schools Project. One particular aspect of these improvements and a focus of this report are a new informal zebra crossing and warning lights on the walking route where it crosses the Bristol to Bath Railway Path. This crossing has been identified as exhibiting conflict between different types of user, and in particular between school children crossing the path and commuter cyclists travelling towards Bristol city centre in the morning peak. This report presents findings from a survey of path users which sought their opinions and experiences of using the infrastructure in safety terms, and the perceived impact of the two additional measures on path safety.
