Lewes Road cycle lane takes turn for the better
12:40pm Thursday 10th January 2013 in News
A major city road is being made more cycle-friendly.
A cycle lane in Lewes Road, Brighton, near Wild Park, is veering behind a bus shelter so buses do not pull to a halt in front of cyclists.
The work is part of a redesign which will see the dual carriageway split into one lane for cars and one for bicycles and buses.
The scheme is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
Brighton and Hove City Council said the bus stop swerving plan may be copied in parts of London.
Coun Ian Davey, chairman of the Brighton and Hove City Council transport committee, said: “This is indeed the very first part of the works.
"The picture illustrates one of the key safety features for cyclists and a big improvement to bus travel.”
