Filip Chvatal discussed some of the challenges in developing a measure of accessibility related to development in the Czech republic, using a variety of spatial scales. Anna Kenyon’s paper looked at inequalities in levels of walking in Scotland, related to measures of the built environment. Finally Kees Maat enlightened us with problems faced by Dutch commuters in finding a bike space at stations, and discussed some strategies for alleviating bicycle congestion.
