It’s good to see feedback from Vicki Coe on this farcical exercise by Council’s safety and sustainability manager.
A complaint by one cyclist has resulted in more than one consultant being engaged to survey the intersection’s safety and more than a year later, the overdesigned and equally unsafe corner is finished. The inclusion of a speed hump is ridiculous.
My experience also is that very few motorists use the lane. The manager of S&S responded with the usual bureaucrat speak of ‘public safety blah blah, consulted the community blah blah’ all of which tells me he did very little other than action the report and design he had commissioned from the consultant.
