Low-level lights are set to give cyclists improved, clearer signals
New low-level traffic lights designed for cyclists have been authorised for use following safety trials.
More than 80% of cyclists favoured the use of low-level signals during the track-based trials of the system, which works by repeating the signal displayed on main traffic lights at the eye level of cyclists.
The clearance means that Transport for London (TfL) can now install the lights at Bow Roundabout – the first time the lights have been used in the UK.
