Photo #62364

This is where cyclists are expected to leave the road and continue on an off-road stretch of cycle path which is still under construction (Nov 2014). As can be seen from the photo, the proposed cycle path is just the existing pavement and is not wide enough to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians. It will be a difficult manoeuvre to get on to the cycle path as indicated by the arrow, and it doesn't even line up with the dropped kerb. The moment you get on to the cycle path you have to negotiate a couple of junctions, not busy ones, but you would have to slow down and look before proceeding. The path is a few hundred metres long at best, so hardly worthwhile. Most cyclists will probably ignore it but will then have to risk being squeezed just ahead by the newly-installed traffic island. The cycle path is only on one side of the road.
