Is Clarendon St about to get some lane works? About a week ago, I noticed some temporary painted lines marking a modified bike lane position, and it looks like it will have a (small) buffer zone on each side. This is for the lanes going in both directions.
The only thing I'm less than happy with is that the new lines appear to have shrunk the existing bike lane (again, in both directions). The outer/right line is more or less where the existing lane finishes, but the inner/left line has moved away from the kerb. In other words, the cyclists will be just as close to car doors as previously. So what exactly is the benefit of these works?
Not trying to criticise anyone, btw, I just want clarification.
