Investment in active travel has increased significantly over the last few years as the UK government looks to fund alternative modes of travel so we become less reliant on the car and find ways of decarbonising our highway and transport network.
To create and sustain high levels of cycling and walking, we need infrastructure that helps people to feel informed, comfortable, and safe. Physical infrastructure, such as barriers and bollards, have been implemented in many areas. Road markings and static signs also have their place. However, technology can take the user experience to another level, increase safety for all and help transport authorities to make data-driven decisions and in some cases, help prioritise cyclists and pedestrians, at junctions for example.
Clearview has been developing solutions that inform decision makers and create safe environments for more permanent walking and cycling infrastructure. Our active travel proposition is centred around two technology platforms – the Insight Smart Mobility Platform and the Connex Modular Hardware Platform that provide the ‘common architecture’ for solutions such as cycle detection, sensors, count and classification and active road studs.
To become less reliant on the car, we need to feel informed, comfortable & safe when walking, cycling or traveling on public transport.
The Stoneferry Corridor is a primary route originating north of Hull, with strategic connections to the Port of Hull, City Centre, and Eastern areas of Hull. It is heavily dominated by industry, HGV activity and businesses, with pockets of residential, retail, and educational buildings.
Cambridgeshire County Council, in partnership with Milestone Infrastructure decided that all studs should be fully renewed.
M100BR installation keeps bus station customers safe and warm in the North East of England.
Improving safety for pedestrians on railway crossings using pedeSOLAR level crossing system with integrated SolarLite solar powered active road studs to delineate the edges of the crossing.
Blue solar powered lighting studs were installed on the platform edge in Romford railway station in a trial to understand the effectiveness of using blue lighting to reduce incidents and anti-social behaviour at railway stations. The studs have the added benefit of enhancing the delineation of the platform edge.
Bicycle detection for traffic signals in Whitelegg Way, Bournemouth, Dorset.
The Union Canal is a 31.5 mile (50.7 km) canal in Scotland, from Lochrin Basin and the Leamington lift bridge in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh to Falkirk, where it meets the Forthand Clyde Canal.
Cyclists in Dundee benefit from night time delineation of cycle paths following the installation of 130 SolarLite Intelligent road studs. These provide cyclists with clearer and more defined guidance of the path ahead for up to 900m.
Clearview Intelligence SolarLite Road Studs are being successfully used all over the world for cycle path installations, increasing visibility in areas where extensive street lighting is not possible or cost effective to install.
SolarLite Active Road Studs used to improve route safety on the A1 in Scotland through enhanced delineation.
Clearview Intelligence worked with Atkins and Cambridgshire County Council to design a lighting solution that provided cyclists and pedestrians with a clear delineation between the cycle path and the busway tracks along the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.
Over 13km of the Union Canal towpath in Falkirk, has now been significantly improved with the installation of around 3,000 Bi-Directional SolarLite Active Road Studs. These now delineate both edges of the towpath at night to provide cyclists and pedestrians with more clearly defined guidance and visibility of the path ahead for up to a distance of 900m.
