Or even [hell-freezes-over] have a temp bike lane, appropriately signed 'walking pace only <10km/h', on the footpath. It's quite wide there, unlike when they worked outside the State Library.

baudman wrote:^Or just take the lane? Drivers shouldn't be going too quickly in the 'little' streets anyway - so the strip from Swanston to Elizabeth should be easy for a cyclist to keep pace? Agreed, a little more difficult on the uphills.
And, to the lady on the completed State Library shared strip, yes I was aware that the tram was coming, which you stated is the reason why you stepped out while it was still 50m away. I'm not entirely sure why you chose to then adjust your stance to ensure you were standing right in front of me after I changed my trajectory, while giving you a courtesy bell ring. And, as I also explained, I was also aware that to hail a tram, you raise your hand and then step onto the carriageway only once the tram has stopped and its doors are open. This would have happened a good 20 seconds after I had passed (it was still behind me when we were having this discussion).
