We are keeping an eye on monitoring cycle use in Newcastle.
A number of cycle counters have been installed in Newcastle over the past years, and we’ve created a map to “keep track” of where these are. We will review these locations to make sure they are right: specially once the strategic cycle routes are agreed it will be a good time to check these overlap. Quantifying cycling is important: the counters will provide data that can be used – amongst other things – to evaluate effectiveness of schemes and for building cases for funding bids. It’s vital that this data is scrutinised independently, and we have repeatedly offered our help to the Newcastle council.

We’ve asked Newcastle City Council to take a good look at their cycle counters and review it. See attached document “Planning a cycle network”.
