CAMBRIDGES­HIRE

- Netherlands

Go­ing Dutch

Road users in Cam­bridge are get­ting used to a new kind of round­about that gives pri­or­ity to pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists in­stead of mo­torists. The round­about fea­tures a bright red outer ring for cy­clists and ze­bra cross­ings on each ap­proach road, a de­sign pop­u­lar in the Netherland­s. The lo­cal coun­cil hopes it will pro­vide a safer en­vi­ron­ment for every­one who uses it. It had to close for a few days, how­ever, when a car hit a Bel­isha bea­con.
