A series of large machines which show how many people are Cycling in Brighton and Hove are to be installed.

The city will be the first place in the country to get the real-time counters after winning funding from the European Union and Cycling England.

The counters will be placed at the seafront cycle lane, opposite the Grand Hotel, the east side of the A23, at the edge of Surrenden Park or opposite Leahurst Court Road and along the A270 Lewes Road, opposite Moulsecoomb Library.

The displays can be configured to show several different totals such as daily bicycle traffic and annual bicycle traffic.

The counters will be installed at the A23 and A270 by March and on the seafront in early summer.
