    I am not a fan of the design of these bike lanes, I don’t believe they make it safer for cyclists, and in Albert St I have seen so many stupid things happening in terms of the ways cars use them, the congestion created by parked cars being that far out and so on.
    Looks like it may be reviewed… Hopefully they have a good think about the one in Swanston St Carlton, and don’t put more in using that bloody stupid design.

  2. Does anyone know if they consulted with BV before they did this? or just went ahead and did it?

  3. BV Supports retaining the lanes in that format.
    I personally would rather not use them as a cyclist as you are hidden from traffic, so every intersection becomes a game of Russian Roulette
