Covered walkways run to the pedshed centre and in older towns have been retrofitted. Pavements have protection from the elements - canopies, walls, fences, trees and hedges – and main roads are easy to cross. Moving walkways speed pedestrian flows when required, particularly at interchanges and in city centres. Roads and surfaced paths are available to cyclists and small traffic as well as pedestrians, and are well engineered, lit, signed and well used. Bicycle hire schemes have docking stations everywhere.
