The city council has installed ‘cycle advanced stop lines’ at numerous city road junctions.

Cycle advanced stop lines (ASLs) make it safer for cyclists by providing a safe space in front of queuing traffic.

With the addition of red road surfacing, this reinforces the presence of cyclists to motorists.  When traffic lights are red, cyclists have a space to wait, with motorists behind them.

ASLs are installed as a matter of course at new or improved road junctions.
