UQ|UP team wins AURIN grant to study bikeability in Australian cities

Bikeability for Transportation: Tools and Data for Research and Practice. This project will develop a new bikeability assessment tool, making it possible to assess and monitor planning, design, infrastructure and policy interventions over time. Combined with AURIN’s existing walkability tool, objective and accessible bikeability measures will support multi‐modal transportation planning with a strong active transportation core. The bikeability tool will also help identify populations both well‐ and underserved with active transportation options.

Grant amount: $135,621. Project team:

  • Dr Scott Lieske, UQ Geography
  • Dr Dorina Pojani, UQ|UP
  • Dr Richard Bunning, UQ BEL
  • John Bancroft QCIF
