Newly installed traffic calming on a minor road. Very simple, very cheap (i.e. could surely be done in the UK), slows down and discourages drivers and causes no problems for cyclists at the same time as making the crossing position obvious.

It's a 30 km/h speed limit road, and the cycle lanes are about 2 m wide. Note that this arrangement only can exist on a road with very low traffic like this one. You wouldn't see it with a higher speed limit or on a busy road.

The video shows a prior speed cushion, then this feature and finally a 4 metre wide cycle path which leads on from this road (at the position of the car in the photo), goes under the ring road and directly to a shopping area. The crossing of a road with the cycle path gives the cycle path priority. Cars must wait for cyclists.

The white spots on the photo are mainly snow. It may be near the end of February but it's still not convincingly above freezing here, and there are still frozen lakes and ponds.

The same shopping centre is visible in the video here, which shows the route along a cycle path at 90 degrees to this one:
