This question was answered on 5th March 2018

The Department’s guidance for local authorities on designing good, safe infrastructure for cyclists is set out in Local Transport Note 2/08. In line with the commitment made in the Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, the Department is in the process of updating this guidance to take account of developments in cycling infrastructure since its publication in 2008, and aims to publish a revised version by the end of 2018. Additionally, the Department is in the process of reviewing both the Inclusive Mobility and Tactile Paving guidance and has let a research contract to establish the scope of revisions needed. Research for this is anticipated to be completed later this year.
