Dutch-style roundabouts to improve bicycle safety

Trials are being carried out in the South to improve the safety of cyclists.

The project is being carried out by the Transport Research Laboratory in Berkshire and includes Dutch-style roundabouts and creating wider cycle lanes.

The project is being welcomed by Peter Bowers', whose daughter Mary lies in a coma two years after being crushed by a lorry on her way to work.

He said, "If that had been in force, it would have helped Mary because, as I understand it, the cycle lane would have a small period of priority over the rest of the traffic."
