Sustainable Mobility and Safety Research Group
The Sustainable Mobility and Safety Research Group aims to make active and sustainable modes of transport, such as bike riding and walking, the leading modes of travel of the future, generating substantial gains in population and environmental health. It brings together experts in injury prevention, road safety, urban and transport planning, public health, and engineering.
The Australian Research Council funded Cycled Study will develop a platform to model the number of cyclists on each road in a city. This will address significant knowledge gaps in cycling safety, identify areas in which we need enhanced cycling infrastructure and enable the evaluation of the effectiveness of existing infrastructure. Overall, the study anticipates the use of these data will lead to increased cycling participation, enhanced safety, and improved infrastructure planning, thereby resulting in substantial gains in population and environmental health.
