The former seems to call for “permeable” grids for all traffic (permeable for some is an option rather than an prime example) and for loads of links to distributor-like roads (making them ineffective by design). Meanwhile, the Dutch generally seem to keep limiting motorised access to distributor roads and limit grid permeability for motorists as standard (while keeping access for people on bicycles and on foot).
The Dutch design makes distributor routes more effective at transporting cyclists and motorists with less junctions to interrupt the flow of both, while by design motorists only use residential streets for access, not as “rat runs.”
If the government truly want 20% of trips to be made by bicycle, how should we be designing our network of streets?
