Multi-Use vs. Dual Tread Trails

BOOKMARK

Off-street paths are safer when provided with dual treads for walking and cycling. Two separated trails can be provided, near to each other yet separated by grass or landscaping.

In a dual-tread system, two distinguished trails, one for pedestrians and one for cycling, are near one another and separated by grass or landscaping.

Dual Treads – Separated. This off-street bike trail on the edge of a park in Bogot√°, Colombia provides separate paths for pedestrians and cyclists, helping to reduce conflicts between all users.
