Protected cycle lanes
Protected cycle lanes involve a dedicated lane with a physical barrier (approx. 100mm high) that separates cyclists from lanes used by motorists, enhancing safety.
Protected cycle lanes feel safer for cyclists, and encourage participation.
Note: In the United States, where the number of protected cycle lanes has doubled each year since 2009, it has been found that these facilities are strongly associated with fewer fatalities and better road safety outcomes for all road users.
