The course focused on the planning and design of infrastructure for non-motorised road users including cyclists, pedestrians and animal drawn vehicles. Two focus areas were covered: firstly, NMT serving as independent transport mode covering trips by foot or bicycle between destinations; secondly, NMT serving as feeder system to public transport systems, including bus, BRT and rail.
It took place at the River Club in Observatory which is a very good venue for smaller groups to meet as all the necessary presentation equipment is on hand. The tea breaks and lunches are served efficiently.
The delegates were made up of 10 from City of Cape Town, 1 from Provincial Government Western Cape , 1 from Stellenbosch Municipality and 4 from consultants working on NMT projects – 16 in all.
The delegates were good at participating and questioning the presenters which was appreciated and added to the value of the course. With Cape Town moving forward at pace with bicycle and pedestrian facilities it was gratifying to have 10 delegates from the City of Cape Town
