I Mike I got this response from the council (via my contact) today:
Hi, These main roads are owned & maintained by DPTI. Any requests for sweeping should be passed onto them. I can tell you that DPTI only sweep if requested. They are not big on proactive work. We the COHB do sweep these roads but do not want to take on the responsibility of DPTI infrastructure & maintenance. Thanks
Mike, I might contact the authority, if I can copy your picture and send that.
As I understand the situation, it is a bicycle lane that ends suddenly. There are some examples of similar situations for vehicles, but black and white signs are used to warn drivers. Are you familiar with the old Kintore Avenue -- Victoria Road intersection in the city. Several cyclists complained to me about that hazard. I reminded ACC a couple of times of the concrete protuberance into the bicycle lane, that squeezed cyclists out. That is if they had not run into concrete because it was hard to see at night (especially when going faster down the hill). ACC fixed it.
There may be a bicycle path on the OTHER side, so first cyclists must cross the road, a potential hazard surely with that busy road. That is, if the cyclist/s have not run off the road, or tried to move into the travel lane and been hit.
