Cyclist visibility to be improved across Greater Manchester

  • 24 February 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Greater Manchester is investing £650,000 in improving the visibility of cyclists for HGVs in the North West.

Local transport authority Transport for Greater Manchester and local councils have identified 176 junctions where additional cycle safety features will be installed.

The authority is in the process of fitting convex ‘Trixi’ mirrors to traffic lights at left turn junctions across the region to help improve drivers’ visibility of cyclists in their blind spot.

Advanced stop lines are also being introduced at 100 junctions to allow cyclists to wait in front of other traffic.

The local transport authority received £500,000 in funding for the project from the Department for Transport’s (DfT’s) £40m investment in local cycle safety projects last year.

Councillor Chris Paul said: “Any road accident is one too many and any measures we can take to improve cycling safety should be welcome.”

Last year a Leeds-to-Bradford ‘cycle superhighway’ received an £18.1m government funding grant in a separate investment in cycling infrastructure. It is expected to be completed in March 2015.
