Coloured Premark signs mark Moscow’s cycle lanes
Geveko Materials, which combined the sales forces of Plastiroute, Cleanosol and LKF, all of them long-established names in the road marking industry, will have a major presence at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014. An indication of how the company is developing the sector, and providing flexibility involves a bicycle marking project in Moscow.
As the company points out, there are many opportunities to include coloured symbols and white signs as informative and guiding elements for traffic. Some signs, symbols, letters and numbers are included in the various standards in different countries around the world, while some are specially made for solving a specific traffic problem.
According to Geveko, these are all examples of how coloured Premark signs are used to guide traffic on the road, so drivers of cars, trucks, and other road users, are presented with relevant information. But coloured and white traffic signs and symbols in the road can also be used to protect the vulnerable road users like the bicycle markings in Moscow. The Russian capital is working to improve conditions for cyclists and pedestrians in the city. Currently, they are working on an 18km bicycle lane between the two biggest parks - Gorky Park and Park Kultury. Recently, the first two kilometres of the bicycle lane were opened which use Premark preformed thermoplastic coloured bicycle signs, arrows and pedestrian signs to mark the route and improve safety.
