- The two aspects of readability.
- The route alignment along the river Zenne improves the readability of the F1 cycle highway.
- CS7 cycle superhighway in London
- Different readability elements on the Rijnwaalpad cycle highway.
A cycle highway is readable when it has self-explaining infrastructure by means of three types of readability elements:
- horizontal elements: f.i. a continuous blue or red asphalt, a coloured line, markings on the pavement,...
- vertical elements: f.i. the different pieces of infrastructure are glued together with signposts (f.i. wayfinding elements), lighting,. metrolines,...
- landscape elements: a route alignment that can be easily understood and followed (f.i. along a waterway, railways,...).
An optimal readability is achieved when the infrastructural aspect of readability is combined with the awareness aspect of readability.
