Safety aspects of contraflow cycling


Detailed analysis of accidents involv-ing cyclists on cyclist contraflows in the brussels-capital Region (2008, 2009 and 2010).

Cyclist contra-flows encourage more people to travel by bicycle, as they allow cyclists to use safe routes and avoid unnecessary detours. Several years after their generalisation in the Brussels-Capital Region, it was appropriate to assess their impact on cyclist safety. Although the number of accidents involving cyclists on contra-flows is rather low, Brussels Mobility asked the Belgian Road Safety Institute (IBSR/BIVV) to quantify the accident risk and analyse the accidents in order to identify and understand their circumstances. This publication also makes recommendations on road layouts and awareness-raising with a view to reducing the accident risk.
