Low level lights for cyclists activated
As we reported back in December, the low level traffic lights at London’s Bow Roundabout were officially opened by Boris Johnston this morning.
The lights - small, cycle specific traffic signals - could permit cyclists to start early and proceed straight ahead through a junction without coming into conflict with other road users who may wish to turn left across their path. They are being considered in other locations where there is a similar conflict to that at Bow.
The launch in London is seen as a first step for a potential roll out to other areas of Britain.
