The new roundabout at Macisaac Rd in Mooroopna features green bike lanes in the actual roundabout. It has taken many years for the authorities in Victoria to come to an agreement on what to do with bike lanes when they come to roundabouts. In the past the bike lane comes to an abrupt end when a cyclists approaches a roundabout and they have to merge and mix in the the traffic. Going on accident statistics it’s at intersections where the cyclists needs the most protection so its good to see that the authorities have decided on a format. Hopefully this will flow onto other roundabouts in the area to make it a safer place for all to cycle.
