Flexible bollards delineate traffic in cycling scheme

The Belfast Cycle Network is using flexible bollards with attached signage to mark the cycle lanes and keep cyclists separated from other traffic in the city.

Self-righting bollards on Belfast cycle waysInnovative self-righting SPS 2Twenty bollards from SignPost Solutions, part of the SWARCO Group, are playing a central part in the major new Belfast Cycle Network, which is being implemented in Belfast City centre.

The SPS 2Twenty is an easy to install, highly versatile slim line bollard that has been specifically designed for cycle lanes and other applications where a path needs to be clearly, visibly and safely delineated such as in car parks or at hospitals, airports, railway stations and supermarkets.

The main face of the bollard allows customisable graphics that are recessed and easy to clean. A synthetic low profile rubber base delivers excellent levels of vandal and impact resistance. The absence of any springs or mechanical parts reduces the likelihood of failure and removes the need for costly servicing or repair.

Chris Nicklin, Managing Director of SignPost Solutions, says the bollards were chosen for their flexibility in design and installation: “The distinctive SPS 2Twenty is a highly visible, stylish and effective means of separating traffic from cyclists and will go a long way to encouraging more cyclists onto the roads and improving cycling safety.”

The first of five new schemes, which links Alfred Street from Ormeau Avenue to Chichester Street, was recently opened in Belfast.
