Bike Lanes Facility #1: A two lane road, similar to facility one, with a painted center line instead of a dividing median. The facility was slightly more stressful, as compared to the previous, due to vehicles travelling closer to bike lane to avoid the oncoming traffic. Bike lanes were wider, approximately 6-8’. Notably here were [...]

  Bike Lanes Facility #1: Nassaulaan A two lane road with a painted center line. Notably here were integrated bus stop platforms. These platforms diverted cyclists off the roadway to between the bus stop loading area and the bus stop waiting/seating area.  It seems like an effective solution to the issue of buses crossing or entering the bike lane [...]

Bike Lanes (1, 2, 4) Bike lanes are those where bikes have their own lane but there is no median between the cars and the bikes.  There are only painted lines on the ground.  These seem to be the less safe of the different facility types since there is nothing to protect the bikers from [...]

Bicycling Facilities in Delft – Orion Paul

OVERVIEW It hasn't even been a full week in the Netherlands and already we've seen nearly every possible method of conveying bicycles from point to point. Here the bicycle isn't used exclusively for a hobby - it's a required tool for everyday life. With so many cyclists, it is necessary to put in place infrastructure [...]

Delft Bicycling Facility Tour- Leina Xu

Cycle Tracks: These bike facilities are also called protected bike lanes, because they are exclusive bikeways that have some sort of vertical divider between bicycle traffic and road traffic. These dividers are vertical, and often come in the form of raised medians with grass or trees. They are usually between parking lanes and sidewalks. The [...]

Assignment 4: Jorden Van Emmerik

Assignment 4: Delft Bicycling Facilities: Jorden van Emmerik Bike Lanes Nassaulaan For this road, the municipality decided to install bike lanes adjacent to a lane of traffic. For most of the street, only one side has parking but at one point the two bike lanes vanish to allow parking on both sides of the [...]

PROJECT ONE - BICYCLE INFASTRUCTURE Throughout Project One, we rode through and observed different bicycle infrastructure throughout Delft and the surrounding areas. We were able to study six different forms of bicycle routes: bicycle lanes, bicycle boulevards (quietways), cycle tracks, advisory lanes, bicycle highways, and service roads. Bicycle lanes are simple cycle routes along roadways, approximately five [...]

Delft Tour 1 & 2: Bicycling Facilities

Bikes Lanes Bikes lanes, and especially the ones on Nassaulaan and Julianalaan, definitely make me feel less safe than on other types of bicycle infrastructure. This is mainly due to the presence of parked cars directly next to the bike lanes with no buffer for car doors to be opened safely, along with motor vehicle [...]
