New bus lane enforcement measures are being introduced in Hull in order to improve the safety of cyclists.
The move comes as part of Hull City Council’s plans to overhaul its cycling infrastructure and encourage more people to choose an active form of travel.
Signs are going up across the city on all bus lanes to remind motorists of the changes which come into effect on 13 July.
Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for economic investment, regeneration and planning, said, “As part of the implementation of pop-up cycle lanes, we are extending the operational time of all existing bus lanes in the city centre across the day rather than just the morning and evening peak travel times.
“The first step is to extend the times then later in the summer we will be relining and marking the routes to make them much more visible for cyclists. We will also be looking at how we can assist cyclists along the route where there isn’t a bus lane to use.
“At this stage, we are not amending any of the waiting, parking or loading restrictions already in place.”
The measures are temporary under an experimental traffic regulation order and will not be made permanent until a consultation has taken place.
