Existing cycle design guidelines were focused on high speed cycle movements and did not address shared spaces where pedestrians and cyclists have equal right of movement. A “cycle highway” approach permeated the guidance. In response CUSP led a collaborative process with EDQ to develop new design guidelines that met safety, functional and aesthetic objectives, creating a new ‘language’ for cycle & pedestrian shared zones across the Queens Wharf Precinct.

CUSP applied 3D modelling and high-quality graphic representations to illustrate the palette of design cues, such as functional signage and sightlines, to slow cyclists and alert pedestrians as they enter and traverse the shared spaces.
