Bike Spotting: Hauraki Cnr Commuters
I took these at 5.15pm on Tuesday afternoon. My god, after riding up from the (quiet) beach it was a traffic-jam hell on Lake Road, I don’t know how people suffer it. These two bicycle commuters avoided certain death by riding on the footpath past the intersection and who could blame them, it was like a scene from Mad Max out on the road.
I spoke to some contractors working on the Hauraki Cnr to Esmond Rd upgrade while I was in the vicinity and a separated (by paint) 1.5m cycle lane is planned for each side of the road. That can’t come quick enough but I hope it doesn’t peter-out approaching the intersection like the one in Belmont does.
