Signalised junction design
Signalised junctions are the most common kind of major junction on busier roads in urban areas and when well designed can reduce delays for all road users. Our traffic modelling expertise enables us to optimise signal timings to minimise delays and address the needs of all road users including pedestrians and vulnerable road users, especially cyclists.
We pay particular attention to the safety of cyclists as two thirds of cycle accidents occur at junctions, with the most severe involving heavy goods vehicles.
We also have wide experience of installing the latest technology including infra-red and microwave cycle detection equipment and introducing facilities for cyclists where appropriate.
Project Centre has designed all of the signalised junctions associated with the Exhibition Road and the South Kensington area network improvements as well as upgrading signalised junctions in preparation for the Olympic Route Network.
