TfL gets designs ready to improve ‘danger’ junctions for cyclists

PUBLISHED: 12:18 23 July 2012

Work begins on designs later this year to make dangerous road junctions safer for cyclists—including the notorious A11 Bow Road roundabout in east London where two cyclists have been killed.

TfL has completed a study of 500 locations and drawn up a ‘priority list’ of 100 where designs will be ready by the end of next year.

Meanwhile, emergency improvements are being made at 50 locations over the next 18 months including 35 from the priority list and 15 from the remaining 400.

Planners want to widen crossroads to allow more space for cyclists, create more segregated lanes and install ‘early start’ traffic signals to allow pedal riders to move through junctions ahead of motor traffic.

More super cycleways are also planned, including extending Route 2 from Tower Hill and Bow Roundabout on to Stratford High Street next summer.
