"Regarding the "too narrow" criticism... for the section that goes along Railway Terrace (as in my first two photos), they probably didn't have a lot of choice, because there was only a finite amount of road width to work with. (Though…"

"I agree , the new part of this "bikeway" looks like it has been designed and engineered by someone who never rides a bike . too narrow , too much concrete , bends too sharp . I wouldn't like to be riding it at night time ."

Separated bike lane on Railway Terrace in Edwardstown

Just rode the newly installed stretch and really am wondering what they were thinking when they designed this.The entry and exit end bits are hard to see and very very narrow, with a fat concrete separator in the middle between them, but also forcing a weird angle of entry.This is potentially dangerous if approached at speed.
