Why does BNB support a design for the Rocks Rd. Cycling/Walking improvements based on Concept 2 ? Primarily because in order to significantly increase the numbers of cyclists on Rocks Rd., the design needs to allow less confident cyclists to cycle off the road.
Does concept 2 have problems ? Yes it does. Will the final design require some compromises ? Almost certainly.
At this stage however, to a large degree what we're discussing are the concepts and we hope that specific issues such as the loss of parking spaces and concerns around fast moving cyclists can be mitigated in the design stage. We have put together some key points that we published on our Facebook page below that hopefully help explain why Bicycle Nelson Bays supports a design based on Concept 2.
