Cyclist friendly traffic signals installed in Bath’s Queen Square
New traffic signals which give cyclists a head start over other traffic have been turned on in Bath’s Queen Square.
The signals, which have been installed as part of the preparations for the introduction of the Clean Air Zone due to come into effect next year, are the first of their kind in Bath and North East Somerset.
They feature low level signals for cyclists and, on the approaches to some junctions, allow cyclists to safely move off ahead of other vehicles by giving a cycling only green signal before other road traffic is released.
As well as benefitting from the new traffic signals Queen Square has also been completely resurfaced.
