I wish to advise you that the operation of the Albert Street bike movement at the intersection of Hoddle Street/Albert Street/Elizabeth Street will be modified to be similar to the bike movements at Johnston Street/Napier Street. The new operation is anticipated to be implemented in early November 2011...
Anyone seen any changes?
Oh, and the treatment of having the bike lane crossing the left turn lane, down at Hoddle? This is how the dutch do it now.

I like the idea. Can't help thinking that it would only work in Australia if the cycle and other lanes were separated by a barrier high enough to deter motorists from "cutting corners", because a lot of motorists in Australia seem to be really good at that.
