Traffic lights: 5-second advance for cyclists


There was a slight mistake in the previous post about the proposed traffic lights at the junction of Cardonald Place Road with Paisley Road West: we have asked for a 5-second, not a 5-minute, advance on the timing to allow cyclists to exit Cardonald Place Road before traffic from Tweedsmuir Road starts moving.

This is an accepted aspect of traffic lights and should, in our opinion, be used more.  Glasgow City Council have said they will consider introducing a 5-second advance for cyclists travelling west on Gordon Street at the junction with Renfield Street / Union Street.  This would allow cyclists to get onto the junction before taxis etc coming from Central Station turn right across their path into Union Street.
