Irish Cycle Facility of the Week

June 9, 2014:


At this junction, too many people on bicycles were choosing to rejoin the road rather than be pedestrianise and be directed to the pedestrian-only crossing. But this caused problems so this high-standard Irish junction received an Irish solution — railing were extended were extended to block people from re-joining the road.

An optional extra option is to wait at the yield markings where the black-top cycle path ends — the railing might just move out of your way, you never know.
