Week 3

Week 3 was GreenLight's most productive and fruitful week yet. Day after day, they slaved over over the design boards, throwing out idea after idea and finally, a solution was born. This solution integrates proposals 1 and 3 from the previous week and combines them with optimised traffic signals to provide a safe and efficient junction. The design features a circumferential cycle lane for cyclists to perform two stage right turns and to have a safe, protected space to wait in, a lane adjustment on West Carriage Drive providing high quality cycle lanes and a double stopping line for pedestrians.

Our traffic guru, Bill, managed to generate an entire signalling plan in LinSig in little under a week, complete with optimisations and manual extensions in order to customise it for our junction. Furthermore, the gate design was finalised and drawn.
