Client: Melbourne City Council
Many serious and less severe road crashes between vehicles and bicycle riders occur when drivers turn across their paths. At three high-risk locations, Melbourne City Council reduced the risk to bike riders by installing an integrated safety solution including bicycle and scooter activated lighting to alert drivers to the presence of riders.
Low-voltage in-ground LED Bicycle Activated Lights and a roadside LED Sign flash when bicycle and scooter riders cross a detector loop.
At each site, the potential for trauma and stress caused by road crashes is significantly reduced by the installed lighting, traffic sensors and OmniGrip CST Australian recycled-glass skid-resistant bicycle lane surface. Initial feedback is that this affordable technology provided an immediate impact to positively address safety at the traffic-dense intersections.
This integrated safety solution will reduce the many aspects of trauma and stress caused by road crashes.
