Abstract
In this paper a planned Cycle Super Highway between two Swedish cities, Malmö and Lund, are studied with the focus onto what extent public participation should be implemented in the planning process. The question at issue was examined by performing quantitative interviews with cyclists traveling the current route, a common bicycle path, and also by interviewing three planners representing public authorities with involvement in the project. Values and attitudes from both segments were analysed and compared in order to determine disagreements, which might indicate a shortage of public involvement in the planning process so far. The results imply that values and attitudes regarding what should characterize the Cycle Super Highway, differs... (More)
In this paper a planned Cycle Super Highway between two Swedish cities, Malmö and Lund, are studied with the focus onto what extent public participation should be implemented in the planning process. The question at issue was examined by performing quantitative interviews with cyclists traveling the current route, a common bicycle path, and also by interviewing three planners representing public authorities with involvement in the project. Values and attitudes from both segments were analysed and compared in order to determine disagreements, which might indicate a shortage of public involvement in the planning process so far. The results imply that values and attitudes regarding what should characterize the Cycle Super Highway, differs between users and planners. There seem to be a pre- understanding among the interviewed planners that travel-time savings are the most important issue to consider when establishing the new route. On the contrary, answers from users indicate that times savings are among the least important issues in the context. Other elements such as security, comfort and convenience achieved higher priorities among users. The results in this study suggest that it might be necessary to implement further dialogue with the public concerned. (Less)
