To design road markings which can be turned on and off to change the road markings/layout of a road depending on conditions (e.g. peak hours only bus lane) making them more dynamic.

Bromley Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The vision is to create DRM that can be used in all lighting conditions and is safe for cyclists and motorcyclists to ride over that can be used to replace road markings that are time limited but remain compliant with TSRGD. Ultimately DRM could be used for Tidal Flow/reversible lanes without the need for unsightly gantries.

What we'll deliver:

  • • The lighting solution needs to be visible to motorists in all light and road-lighting conditions
  • • The Unit must be able to remain on constantly for 24 hours a day
  • • Solution must be directional so that it does not create additional light pollution for residents
  • • Must be able to sustain a high volume of heavy vehicles and corrosion and water-proof
  • • Must not cause a skidding hazard for any road user and must not be a slip or trip hazard for pedestrians.
  • • The device must be durable enough to have the road surface replaced around it without it sustaining damage
  • • Must not significantly reduce ride quality for road users travelling over it.
  • • Any system would likely need type approval from Department for Transport.

Why it's a great idea:

The project will reduce congestion and improve road conditions for all travellers

Steps to get it done:

  • The project is sponsored by Bromley Council and supported by Transport for London and TRL Ltd.
