American proposal for a busy road junction considers the needs and safety of cyclists, pedestrians and road users

Nick Falbo of www.protectedintersection.com presents a design for a ‘protected intersection’ for American roads based on similar layouts used in the Netherlands.

The design aims to eliminate the safety problems associated with protected bike lanes merging with other traffic at busy road junctions, increasing the risk of collisions as traffic mingles.
