Milton Park is to trial 30 free new See Sense bike light sensors to bring people and technology together to help improve and prioritise cycle investment and journeys for people working on the park and the local community.
The project aims to encourage more people to cycle, and will see hundreds of cyclists use the award-winning See.Sense bike light and accompanying app, to collect data on journeys, speed, delays, road surface quality, collisions, near miss and other self-reported events.
De-personalised insights will then be shared with the transport planners in the Council and at Milton Park, to gain a better understanding of the conditions faced by cyclists, so that improvements can be made.
The project will run for 12 months, from November 2019.
