Have you seen the new bike lanes on roads around Wynnum? What do you think of them? At WynnumCentral we’re aware that not everybody is in favour of them, but we are and here’s why…
1) Cycling should be encouraged for all sorts of reasons and cyclists and cars really don’t mix that well – we’re better off with cycle lanes
2) On wide roads (like Wynnum North Road as pictured for example) as a pedestrian it can be very hard to cross, particularly when traffic is travelling fast. The new bike lanes effectively ‘narrow’ the road down, slow traffic slightly and make it much safer for pedestrians to cross. Given the proximity of a primary school to this particular location, this is good news in our opinion.
Let us know what you think.
