With more and more people taking to two wheels as a mode of transport, the need for effective cycling infrastructure is continually increasing.
There have been many discussions about public transport and how it can help overcome the current issues we are facing – climate change, increased fuel prices and limited fossil fuels – as well as how line markings help public transport to run efficiently.
But it is not just public transport that helps to combat these issues.
An increasing number of people are turning to cycling as an alternative mode of transport to cars and public transport. This is great to see, not only because it helps to ease the pressures on our roads, but also because cycling has a range of other benefits.
This growth in the popularity of cycling countrywide is putting pressure on councils to develop and maintain new and existing cycling infrastructure, as the need for effective and safe cycling infrastructure is increasing. It is important that councils are hiring line marking companies that will mark out well constructed and clearly marked cycling tracks, as well as maintaining these tracks regularly to keep it safe for all users.
Local authorities have a clear responsibility for providing effective cycling infrastructure to meet the demands of the increasing number of cyclists in the UK, but has your business considered the ways in which you can contribute to effective and safe cycling infrastructure?
We can help councils with our line marking services and we have the experience and knowledge to mark out cycle lanes and routes in a range of locations and on a wide range of surfaces. But we can also help businesses looking to facilitate safe cycling on their site for their customers or their employees.
We can mark out cycle lanes on your site to ensure that customers coming to visit you or employees commuting to work can cycle safely on your site. These cycle lanes are like the pedestrian walkways we mark out to help businesses meet health and safety regulations but are just solely for use of cyclists. As well as this, we can also add cycle parking areas to your car park or site, to facilitate an area where cyclists can safely secure their bikes whilst visiting your premises.
If your business is interested in ensuring your site and car park meets the needs of all customers and employees, including those wishing to cycle to your business, now is the perfect time to contact us to have cycle markings installed – just in time for the better weather where it is more likely that people will get on their bikes and cycle more often.
