Bicycle kerb is a device to enhance delineation of cycle lanes, providing a physical separation between cyclist and motorist. It can come in a number of forms, however the specifically designed ‘Bicycle Kerb’ is the best suited to purpose.
- 1.2m long with transition at each end.
- Rumble device in the vehicle lane to alert drivers they are crossing into a cycle lane
- Yellow recycled rubber with built in reflectors
- Can be placed with 100mm gaps to allow for water to flow through
- A typical installation could be 1.2m of Bicycle Kerb with a 1m gap to allow cyclists to enter and exit the cycle lane
- The cycle lane edge of the kerb has a shallow ramped face as low as 3mm to provide minimal impact to the cyclist
- Offers protection for cyclists
- Contours to road surface and curves
Ideally suited to
- Squeeze points at intersections and roundabouts
- School zones – entry and exit points for cyclists
- Approaches to pedestrian crossings, particularly around school zones
- Locations where the pavement size increases or decreases
- On cycle paths at intersections to alert cyclists they are approaching a hazard
