HC Deb 26 June 1995 vol 262 cc442-3W
Mr. Spearing

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what guidance he has issued to highway authorities concerning the provision of advance startling lines for bicycles at suitable signal-controlled intersections; and what action in this regard is being taken by London boroughs. [30804]

Mr. Norris

Guidance has been given in the form of traffic advisory leaflets, which are distributed free to local authorities and other interested bodies. Four leaflets have been issued. The most recent one, TAL 8/93, summarises the findings of the research studies on all our trial installation of advance stop lines, and provides basic design details. We expect this advice to be reflected within the 1,200 mile London cycle network which is now under construction.
