Green transport infrastructure Seminar

The World Resources Institute invited experts from Britain, Denmark and Australia. Mr. Ben Proden, director of the Strategic Planning Department of Ground Transport at the London Transport Bureau, who has been in the UK for more than 20 years, gave a detailed account of how London's latest Mayor's Transport Strategy creates a city that is not dominated by vehicles and promotes cycling through healthy streets. London faces challenges such as congestion, air quality and lack of sports. Mr. Proden also showed London's measures and timetables to achieve zero road traffic emissions and improve air quality. Mr. Pablo Sellis, director of the Road Department of Aarhus, Denmark and chairman of the Danish National Bicycle Committee, is an avid cyclist. His involvement in the formulation and 

implementation of the Aarhus Bicycle Action Plan has increased the use of bicycles in Aarhus by 19% over the past four years. Starting from his own experience, he shared with participants how Denmark encouraged cycling through the design and construction of its bicycle infrastructure, from a country that opposes women's cycling to a kingdom where everyone rides bicycles. Ms. Youningjia, senior transportation consultant at the International Road Safety Assessment Organization (iRAP), a British non-profit organization, has extensive experience in the safety design of bicycle infrastructure. From the point of view of safety design of bicycle expressways, she describes the safety design guidance of bicycle-only sections (between two intersections) and plane intersections. And international experience. Mr. Liu Daizhong, Director of the China Sustainable Cities and Transportation Project of the World Resources Institute, takes the advanced experiences of Denmark, Singapore, New York, the Netherlands, Utrecht, Sweden and Malm as examples to explore how to give full play to the legal priority of cyclists by changing the values of urban transport development. Planning innovation and pioneering role, street design details and speed up the construction of bicycle infrastructure to re-integrate bicycles into urban development, and analyzed the Seattle sharing of bicycle pilot management rules.
