Red squares make cycling safer
Cycling in Brighton & Hove has been made safer thanks to new 'advanced cycle stop lines' at 21 of the city's busiest junctions.
Cycle advanced stop lines provide a space for cyclists in front of queuing traffic - and red road surfacing reinforces the presence of cyclists to motorists.
Cllr Joyce Edmond-Smith said: "The number of cyclists in the city is increasing all the time. Measures such as advanced stop lines make it clear that cyclists have an equal claim to the road and that drivers need to be more aware of them."
Dean Spears, principal transport planner, added: "We have been innovative where we can - for example, using arrow markings within the box to help cyclists understand the movement of motor traffic at filter lights."
