Transport for London P2W in bus lanes study

Transport for London P2W in bus lanes study report 2007 [1]


Precis

TfL study to investigate and offer evidence to show whether the safety of P2W users could be enhanced by allowing them access to bus lanes. The assessment was to involve comparing the casualty rate of all vulnerable road users (VRUs) to ensure the measure does not create a negative impact on other road users.

The report concluded that:

• The comparisons of collisions involving VRUs using the Tanner control showed neither a benefit nor disbenefits from the introduction of the measure. None of the results from any of the user group comparisons were statistically significant.

• When the VRU collisions were assessed against the original control routes, a net benefit to all groups was returned. However, included in this reduction were localised increases in pedestrian casualties on the A41 None of the results were statistically significant.

• When the collision rates were analysed (i.e. taking into consideration the increase in usage of P2Ws) there was a safety benefit to all VRUs with no localised increases in collisions.
