Using an innovative design making its world debut, one can now cycle and arrive at the green light every time along a specific corridor in Odense, Denmark. To guide bicyclists, the City of Odense has developed a "running light" along a set of bollards that makes a "green wave." As the video clip shows, 45 bollards with lights turn green at a given speed, cuing the cyclist to speed up or slow down to avoid the red light. The light at the end will turn red just before the traffic signal turns red to warn cyclists of the impending red light. It is just one more way Odense is given priority to cyclists, giving them direct, comfortable and coherent cycling routes. See http://www.cykelby.dk/english.asp#wave for more info. The estimated cost for the bollards is £10,000-15,000 (British pounds.) A Cycling Scotland Video.
