Boy, I can't believe their 'solution' for the Shaw Rd pedestrian and cycle crossing.
in the pic below, the areas marked '1' are
"Feature landscaping to be prominently ornamental and native grasses with contrasting color to provide a visual indication of entering the Wooloowin area."
Man, this is so ill considered. This 'visual indication' blocks both shoulders, and will therefore force Shaw Rd commuter cyclists out into the heavy traffic flow vehicle lanes, which are horrendous in peak hour. I travel this section of Shaw Rd almost daily, and cannot believe yet another dangerous pinch point has been created by planners with apparently no experience riding bikes.
