Types of Bike Symbol Road Marking

Cycle lanes are designated areas on roads that provide a dedicated space for bicycles

These lanes are marked with various types of markings to indicate their presence to drivers and help cyclists navigate the road safely. Here are the most common types of cycle lane markings:

Solid White Line

A solid white line marking indicates the boundary of a cycle lane. Motorists are not allowed to cross this line and enter the cycle lane, except when turning or crossing a driveway.

Dashed White Line

A dashed white line marking indicates a section of the cycle lane where cyclists may merge with motor vehicle traffic, such as at junctions or roundabouts.

Cars may cross the dashed line to enter the cycle lane but only if it is safe to do so.

Coloured Surface

Cycle lanes are often coloured green or red to make them more visible to drivers. The colour is used to differentiate the cycle lane from the rest of the road.


Cycle lane markings often include symbols, such as a bike or an arrow, to provide guidance to drivers. The bike symbol is used to indicate that the lane is specifically for cyclists, while arrows may be used to indicate the direction of travel.


Some cycle lanes are marked with text, such as "Bike Lane" or "Shared Lane", to provide additional information to drivers.

These markings are particularly useful in areas where cycle lanes are not consistently present or where they share the road with other vehicles.

Cycleway Marking Cost

The average cost of installing a standard cycle lane on a road in the UK can range from £850-£5000.

This includes the cost of planning, designing, and implementing the cycle lane, as well as the cost of materials and labour.

Please note that the cost of bicycle markings can vary based on the location, the kind of marking requirement and the number of markings done.

Benefits of Cycle Lane Markings

Cycle lane markings are painted symbols on the road that designate a dedicated space for bicyclists to ride.

These markings have numerous benefits for both cyclists and drivers, and they are increasingly being used in urban areas around the world. Some of the key benefits of cycle lane markings include:

Improved Safety

One of the primary benefits of cycle lane markings is that they make cycling safer.

By designating a dedicated space for cyclists on the road, these markings help to reduce conflicts between cyclists and motor vehicles, particularly at intersections and other areas where there may be a lot of traffic.

Increased Visibility

Cycle lane markings are typically painted in bright colours that make them highly visible to both cyclists and drivers.

This increased visibility helps to raise awareness of the presence of cyclists on the road, which can help to prevent accidents and reduce the risk of injury.

Reduced Congestion

By providing a dedicated space for cyclists to ride, cycle lane markings can help to reduce congestion on the roads.

This is particularly true in urban areas, where cycling can be a faster and more efficient mode of transportation than driving.

Improved Accessibility

Cycle lane markings can also improve accessibility for cyclists, particularly those who are less experienced or less confident on the roads.

Providing a clearly marked and designated space for cycling, these markings can help to encourage more people to take up cycling as a means of transportation.

Cycle path markings have a range of benefits for both cyclists and drivers, including improved safety, increased visibility, reduced congestion, improved accessibility, and cost-effectiveness.

As such, they are an important tool for promoting cycling as a sustainable and healthy mode of transportation in urban areas around the world.

Cycle Lane Painting

Cycle lanes are a way of separating traffic from pedal cycle users to ensure it is safe for everyone.

This is a way of keeping drivers away from cyclists and ensuring there is a steady flow of traffic at all times.

The markings that are done for this are a combination of the solid white line and separate markings, which act as a warning to drivers.

These markings are done to prevent car drivers from using the bicycle lane or parking in this space, maintaining the highest safety standards for bicycle users.

If the bicycle lane is shared with pedestrians, there will be a solid white line, which should keep drivers out of this space.

Drivers cannot park in this area either, as it should only be used by bike riders for a steady flow of transport at all times.

Bicycle lane markings will be accompanied by a sign to indicate where traffic should remain, which will allow cyclists to keep to the left.

As well as these, we also offer dual carriageways, turning points, box markings, and other road lines according to the highway rule book.

Cycleway Road Marking Design

As well as marking the road with paint for a cycle path, we can also offer CycleWay markings.

These are a way of separating the path for cycling using heavy, metal-free pigments that will last a long time.

On this kind of path, those riding a bicycle and those walking will not pass each other and so prevent a slow passing of traffic.

This kind of signage is useful on all forms of the path, including areas of high friction and where coloured markings are required.

Cycle Lane Marking Colours

To indicate the cyclists' path, we offer a range of colours for our markings, ensuring they can be noticed at all hours of the day.

Bicycle markings can be reflective in the lights, highlighting the path for bikes and traffic to prevent the mixing of these paths, as well as coming in multiple colours to suit the needs of your local area.

We offer path signs and markings in both white and yellow to ensure maximum safety for bicycle users.

Contact us today to see what colours we can offer for your road markings or load more options on our website.

What are Cycle Lane Markings?

Cycle lane white line markings are markings on roads that designate a dedicated space for bicycles to travel, separate from motor vehicle traffic. These markings help to create a safer environment for cyclists by providing them with a clear and visible space on the road.

Cycle lane markings are typically painted on the road surface and may include various types of markings, such as solid white lines, dashed white lines, broken white lines and coloured surfaces.

They are an essential component of cycling infrastructure, as they provide clear guidance to road users and help to reduce conflicts between cyclists and motor vehicle traffic.

They also help to encourage cycling as a viable mode of transportation by making it safer and more accessible.


Are Cycle Lane Markings Mandatory?

Cycle lane markings are not always mandatory, but they are recommended in areas with a high volume of bicycle traffic.

The decision to implement having a cycle lane marked is usually made by local authorities.

What do The Different Cycle Lane Markings Mean?

Solid white lines indicate that motorists should not cross into the cycle lane, while dashed white lines indicate that motorists can cross into the cycle lane if necessary.

Green paint may also be used to indicate a cycle lane or highlight areas where cyclists need to be especially cautious.

Are Cyclists Required to Use Cycle Lanes?

Cyclists are not required to use cycle lanes, but they may choose to do so if they feel safer riding in a designated lane.

Some roads may have mandatory cycle lanes so cyclists and car users can be safe.
