Two-Step Turns


A two-step turn is often considered safer than a regular turn, with vehicle traffic. To execute this type of turn, a cyclists will ride to the opposite side of the intersection, turn, and then proceed straight. The video below, created by Transport for London, demonstrates this maneouvre. 

A cycle box can be provided in front of the pedestrian crossing of the intersecting street to provide space for bicyclists to queue for turns.
