Cambridge introduces new cyclist safety signs

Cambridge is the first British city to install new warning signs which designate areas that are only accessible by cyclists.

These new "no entry except cycles" signs will replace the "no motor vehicle" alternatives that display a motorcycle on top of a car, which have often misled motorists in streets that provide one-way systems for cars but two-way systems for cyclists, reports Cambridge News.

Martin Lucas-Smith, co-ordinator of Cambridge cycling campaign, said: "We strongly welcome this much clearer signage, and the county council and the Department for Transport are to be congratulated for this long-awaited measure to reduce red tape."

The new signs will be installed in four different areas of the city, including Jesus Lane and Malcolm Street.

Councillors in Baeconsfield have also announced their intentions to improve road signs.

The officials have confirmed new proposals that will see vehicle activated signs brought to Gregories Road, Burkes Road and Sandlewood End.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800577696-ADNFCR
