  Cycle tracks can help cyclists to avoid sharing busy roads with motor vehicles. One of the main problems with providing them, however, is the design of crossings of minor roads. This introduces a hazard and cyclists are usually required to give way. Highway authorities have been reluctant to give priority to cyclists in case drivers fail to observe the priorities and casualties occur. This project investigates the safety and effectiveness of a variety of cycle track crossing arrangements at minor road T-junctions, including crossings with priority for cyclists. Five cycle track crossings were monitored using video cameras and 223 cyclists using the crossings were interviewed. The report draws conclusions about the safety of various designs and makes recommendations about cycle track crossing design.

The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
