Though while designing an individual traffic lane we should keep some issues in mind like easy parking,safety and security,avoidance of too much cross trafficking.

By considering all the issues mentioned above while designing,a city could get the maximum advantage of individual cycling lane.

Great article. Although our context down south (I’m at UCT here in Cape Town) is a little different, we face many of the same problems: South Africans associate cycling with not just poverty but also shame. Although we are (finally) starting to build bicycle lanes, there is still a lot of hostility and outright menace from motorists. Keep fighting the good fight. There is some interesting stuff on Cape Town (and also Lagos) over at futurecapetown.com if you’re interested; we are always keen on contact with other young urbanists in Africa. Best regards, Brett

Have you noticed that our roads lack not only cycle lanes but also pedestrian walk ways? It is not too late to change though, The nairobi masterplan is underway, could be this is an opportunity to redress this?

NMT is critical, taking care of the cyclists and pedestrians ought to be a priority.

Great Article Cap! As a frequent road user in the city, I totally agree with you n see the need of change in the city. I am glad the integrated urban development master plan is thinking of this integration. A liveable city is what we all want.

On the spot and pretty thought provoking stuff. Here are two links you may find pertinent to the topic of NMT mobility.
