Interestingly, was the same pace as the cars that were on PHR turning onto CHR, in that I could catchup at lights and at the Northern rd lights was able to take the bus lane and so do some [very satisfying] leapfrogging.
Probably wouldn't recommend CHR if you're not comfortable with traffic as there isn't any shoulder or anything.
No shoulder but the light phasing works well. I'm not overly quick but for my stretch from Thompsons Corner to Coonara Ave I take the left lane and rarely have had issues with vehicles. They sit behind or change lanes. CHR seems to be one of the better roads in peak hour.
