New ‘bike box’ at Aberdeen and Studholme The new traffic signal at the Aberdeen/Studholme intersection is now operational and has a new “bike box” feature for cyclists.

... and from the latter ...

The first bike-box in Hamilton has been installed on Studholme Road at Aberdeen Avenue. A bike box is used at intersections to designate a space for cyclists to wait in front of cars at a red traffic signal so cyclists are more visible to auto drivers. A bike box minimizes confusion between left-turning cyclists and right-turning cars. The City of Guelph has created an informative video to explain how both bicycles and automobiles are to operate at bike boxes
