Wed 1 May: Boris's Cycling Commissioner Andrew Gilligan at Cricklewood launch of cycling plan

Link to Evening Standard

"Road safety experts have opened the doors to their research centre to show how they plan to adapt London to cope with the cycling boom.

"Innovations include Dutch-style roundabouts prioritising cyclists; low-level traffic lights for riders; and hi-tech sensors attached to thousands of Boris bikes, to curb the rising number of collisions with HGVs.

"A £2 million Transport for London project is examining where the measures — many borrowed from continental Europe — can be implemented to remove accident blackspots.

"Scientists at the Transport Research Laboratory, whose expertise has influenced laws on drink-driving and phone use in cars, have tested the measures using motorists and cyclists from London."
