Signal lights proposed for tram line after cyclist's death
The traffic lights are among a series of safety measures put forward to Edinburgh Council.
New traffic lights which give cyclists a head-start against other traffic have been proposed along Edinburgh's tram route.
The "early release" signals are part of a series of proposals which are going out for public consultation by the city council.
In September last year, it was announced red cycle lanes would be installed on Princes Street as part of safety improvements following the death of a cyclist.
Zhi Min Soh fell from her bike after its wheels became jammed in tracks in May.
The second phase of safety improvements will include advanced stop line boxes at five junctions along the tram route, and are due to be installed by the end of March.
The third phase includes plans for early release signals at 14 junctions along the route.
The signals are already in place at the junction of Leith Walk and McDonald Road.
Also proposed are a new mandatory cycle lane where Princes Street meets South St Andrew Street and a new traffic island at Haymarket Yards.
The council's transport convener Lesley Macinnes said: "With the first phase of cycle safety improvements already in place - and, according to our feedback, well-received by cyclists - and the second phase just weeks away from being implemented, we're now looking to the public for feedback on our proposed designs for Phase three, which we aim to put in place later this year.
"Road safety is absolutely paramount and we've been working extremely closely with our partners to refine these designs.
"Early release signals for cyclists have been credited with reducing collisions in cities where they're already used so these are a particularly desirable option."
Following the death of Malaysian student Zhi Min Soh, the council passed a motion calling for a number of safety improvements along the tram route.
The consultation on the third phase of safety measures will run until April 11.
