Thesis (MEng(TransportSystemsEng))--University of South Australia, 2006. There is a significant gap in the current understanding of issues relating to bicycle safety. The provision of cycling facilities has long been based on professional opinion and has rarely been based on academic research. In particular, it is widely considered that the provision of bicycle lanes improves safety for cyclists, however there is little or no research to confirm this belief. This thesis seeks to improve the current understanding of the impact of bicycle lanes on safety by utilising gap acceptance theory. Unsignalised T-junctions have been surveyed to gather gap data for the estimation and comparison of critical gaps. The findings of this research indicate that bicycle lanes may in fact reduce safety at unsignalised intersections.
