A long-term solution would be to move it completely or separate the peds and cyclists however I don't see that happening any time soon.
We have had talks with two lots of Liberal Transport Ministers as well as CoPerth nad MainRoadsWA to get separation of cyclists and pedestrians in this segment, suggesting it could legally be funded by the parking levy. (Some background can be found on the BTA website). No luck so far, but we will continue to move the various governement departments towards a safer solution. The current mini-roundabouts should result in some slowing down, and also should give peds a better environment - the roundabouts should have a pedestrian passage through them.
