NEW bike lanes may be installed between parked cars and the footpath in Epping to improve cyclists' safety.
Whittlesea council engineering and transportation manager Greg Scott said the Copenhagen-style lanes would be investigated during the redevelopment of High Street between McDonalds and Childs roads in Epping.
Mr Scott said the lanes would depend on road widths, parking demand and community consultation.
The lanes were flagged in Whittlesea council's Epping Central Structure Plan, adopted last month.
But the RACV has warned against the lanes, which are in place in East Melbourne, saying they are confusing and increase congestion...

Nothing in there on the actual design of them, however...
...VicRoads network improvements director Vince Punaro said staff were investigating ways to better separate cyclists from cars and pedestrians through off-road bike paths, on-road bicycle lanes and Copenhagen-style lanes.
Mr Punaro said VicRoads would soon issue design standards for cycling infrastructure, focusing on separation from vehicles.
He said the fully separated on-road bicycle lanes were best suited to areas with a high number of cyclists.
My bold. Anyone know anything about this?
