We are developing interdisciplinary research proposals in a range of related areas, and have various projects on the go. These include:

Near Miss Event
Launching the first Near Miss Project report
      • Examining experiences of cycling in Mexico City – see here for bilingual report & video.
      • Project Pedestrian: Laura Laker’s new journalistic project on pedestrian deaths on footways (pavements) and verges.
      • The Bike Radar Project: a collaboration with colleagues in Computer Science to collect data on passes/interactions with other vehicles.
      • Use of parks and green spaces during the Covid-19 pandemic.
      • A Virtual Reality project in collaboration with colleagues in our XR Labs to create a prototype cycling simulator
      • Cycling injury risk in relation to the route environment, a case-crossover study funded by the Road Safety Trust
      • Near misses, including in relation to route environment factors
      • Evaluation of smaller and larger streetscape interventions, especially their impact on active travel
      • Temporary carfree spaces
      • Driving cessation
      • Cycling with children
      • Media representation of pedestrian and cyclist casualties
      • Using mobile methods to explore street interactions and inequalities

    We have so far (since the ATA started in Autumn 2019) obtained funding from the Department for Transport, the KR Foundation, and Transport for London for some of this work.
