Street design for safe cycling

Street design for safe cycling is priority for many urban environments to encourage more people to use healthy and sustainable transport modes. The designs have many challenges with bus and cycling routes often within close proximity. Floating bus stops are one option which allows cyclist to undertake at a bus stop in a segregated lane. But these are not without some concern as the bus passengers have to cross cycle lanes to get to the bus stop.

Examples are in Elephant & Castle and Whitechapel
