3-Day Training Programme on Safe Accessibility for Road Users

July 27, 2015

July 27– 29, 2015

(For Government Regulators)

We are pleased to announce our three-day training programme on ‘Safe Accessibility for Road users’ organised by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) in New Delhi from July 27– 29, 2015.

This is a specialised programme designed to help officials in developing strategies needed to enhance safe accessibility for pedestrians and non-motorized transport modes. All cities have initiated public transport reforms to address the problem of congestion, road accident risks and air pollution. However, public transport ridership cannot be increased if walking and cycling access are inadequate and unsafe for last mile connectivity and integration. But there is very little awareness regarding the system and network planning and design needed for safe access and multi-modal integration. This training programme is designed to impart technical know how on these critical issues.   

All participants will be encouraged and introduced to an active participatory process of learning, sharing of knowledge and experience for developing a team spirit amongst the participants as well as feedback benefit for faculty.

This specialised programme will facilitate interaction with a select group of experts and resource persons to capture the learning in the region as well as demonstrate change through field trips. This programme represents our initiative to promote good regulatory practices on promoting accessibility for vulnerable road users such as walkers, cyclists and public transport ones.

This interactive forum will cover lectures/presentations and interactions on following wide range of subjects followed by ‘Hands on Group Exercise’ and ‘Group Presentation’ on a critical road traffic situation - 

  1. Role of NMT in integrated mobility management

  2. System Planning for NMT structure and last mile accessibility

  3. NMT operation plans including safe access audits framework

  4. Street Audit and Design – Case Study 

  5. Bicycle sharing- System Design, Operation and management – Case Study 

  6. Pedestrianised street project – Case Study
