CYCLE SIGNALS PUT SAFETY FIRST

ADMINISTRATIONS DE TRANSPORT

This article describes the progress made towards the implementation of a cycle network in bedford, details of which were given in the 13th November 1977 edition of surveyor. Cyclist and pedestrian conflicts at one junction near a large school and recreational area required complete segregation of all junction users with the cyclists on the east, and pedestrians on the west of the junction. The signals consist basically of two primary and two secondary cycle heads; three primary and three secondary motorist heads and two pedestrian heads. Motorists and pedestrians use the junction normally, the cyclists use the junction in different ways depending on the direction of travel and movement. The system is being constantly monitored. Problems encountered and the modifications used to overcome them are described. Future developments and other similar schemes are outlined. (TRRL)
