Wolverhampton Cycle Map Meeting 6 July 2006

 

Introduction

 

The existing Wolverhampton map is now out of print and does not reflect a number of new cycle routes recently developed in Wolverhampton, therefore it was proposed that the Wolverhampton Cycle Map has updated and made available on the internet and as a paper map.

 

A number of cycle maps have been accessed and it was disagreed that the Cheltenham map format should be followed as far as possible.

 

Review of Cycle Maps

 

The following maps have been reviewed to provide the proposed Cycle map content:

 

  •         Coventry
  •         Birmingham
  •         Cheltenham
  •         Wolverhampton
  •         Dudley
  •         Telford
  •         Staffordshire

* 2 proposals have been proposed for the grading of routes.  WCC recommend that 3 simple grades are used based on traffic volume and combining the Cheltenham grades and Wolves on Wheels recommend following a 5 grade system (see Cheltenham).  It was agreed to test the different grading methodologies on a small scale and assess which grading would work best for Wolverhampton.
