TFL are widening cycle lanes at junctions and investing in the super highway, which is great. This mean that at junctions it is much clearer that this space is for cyclists but it end up being a hugely ambiguous space, you are ending up with a compromise which maybe good in other areas but not in road safety. No one really has a clue who has priority and who doesn’t. This means the rules of road don’t work, there is nothing in the highway code telling drivers how to handle junctions with 2.5m wide bike lanes next to them. If we were in Montreal or New York, there would be a great big sign telling motorists turning left to give way to cyclists carrying on straight ahead. Here is the sign and a picture of how it works follow @citycyclists and help campaign for safer roads.
