Abstract

Bicycles are sustainable form of transport having advantages like less noise pollution, less congestion, less
accidents and less maintenance costs compared with motorized modes . Bicycling also offers an affordable transport
option to the low income group especially in developing countries like India which find it difficult to afford any form of
motorized transport it can form an important means for accessing destinations particularly for trips that are too long for
walking or are not served by transit Despite these benefits, bicycling is not a popular choice in Indian cities among
commuters . The main obstacles to boosting the bicycle as a regular mode of transport are safety concerns due to
interactions with motorized traffic . We know that protected cycle lanes are the key to getting the average person to
consider traveling by bicycle. Protected cycle tracks, use curbs, planters, or parking to buffer bicyclists from moving cars
. there is still a problem, The protected bicycle lanes lose their benefits when they reach intersections We need to make
intersections just as safe and secure as the lanes that lead into them. What the Protected bicycle Lane needs is the
Protected Intersection by providing different elements based on analysis of collected data of intersection .
