Cyclist and Motorist Advanced Warning at Side Road Crossings

As part of the Stoneferry corridor works in Hull, Colas UKP, Clearview Intelligence and Hull CC have developed a visual advanced warning system to advise motorists of passing cyclists prior to entering side road junctions.

The system utilises a combination of DfT amber/red IRS2 road studs in ‘strings’ coupled with active cycle detector cabinets and Lidar detectors set some 40m back from junctions that will accurately detect the presence of approaching cyclists before triggering the illuminated studs across the junction to warn both the motorists wishing to turn into the junction, and the motorist wishing to approach the junction to turn out.

The system has also been coupled with raised ‘table tops’ in the side roads to maintain level continuity with the adjacent cycleway, that are also buff coloured with high friction surfacing to aid in both the visual and safety impact of the solution. Give way details have also been set further back as more advance warning.

It is hoped that this solution will be adopted throughout the network in Hull as a safety solution to warn the travelling public of approaching cyclists crossing side roads, thus mitigating the risks of collisions.
