“These improvements to cycle infrastructure provide greater separation between those on two wheels and those on four, which reduces the risk of crashes,” Mr Turner said.
“Overall, it’s good news for those wanting to get around our city because it gives residents a safe alternative to engage in exercise and active transport while reducing traffic demand on these busy roads.”
Mr Turner said drivers should be aware there were still detours in place while final works were completed near the South East Freeway on-ramp.
“We lobbied hard to keep the Stanley Street left turn onto the Pacific Motorway on-ramp, so while it’s good it’ll remain open, it does mean there are still works ongoing in that area,” he said.
“There may still be some delays around the area until the project is finalised, so we’re asking drivers to continue be patient.”
