The government has unveiled proposals to change road markings and traffic signs to give cyclists an advantage at traffic lights.
Roads minister Robert Goodwill announced a consultation on measures including low-height signals and bigger cycle boxes.
Other proposals include shared road crossings for cyclists and pedestrians, and measures to allow councils to cut down on numbers of signs.
Goodwill said: “The number of signs have soared from 2M in 1993 to over 4.6M today. This is causing unnecessary clutter in our towns and cities.
“The proposed changes will mean greater flexibility for councils to cut the number of signs, while ensuring consistency and making sure our roads are even safer for cyclists and motorists.”
The consultation closes on 12 June.
