Bus boarding kerb improves passenger safety & prevents illegal parking

  • 1 Oct 2014

Kassel kerbs were found to be ‘fit for purpose’ following research conducted at University College London in 1998, especially when used with modern low-floor buses to enhance passenger safety.

The Lewes Road project is the biggest single installation of Kassel kerbs and will service the route along Brighton’s academic corridor, reducing the extent of cage marking needed to indicate where a bus should stop and also preventing motorists from parking illegally.

The combination of low floor buses and Kassel kerbs improves access for disabled passengers or those with young children, whilst also speeding up journey times.

Improvements have been made at twelve different pairs of bus stops across the 3.6 mile road, with the Brett Kassel kerb system being chosen for installation for the remainder of the bus road infrastructure project.
