Now that school is back there is an increased number of children on bicycles, particularly during peak drive times. To ensure that children remain safe Council would like to remind drivers and cyclists of the differences in the line markings and what they mean.

An exclusive bicycle lane typical of those around Conroe Drive, Crouch Street North, Crouch Street South, Wireless Road East, Wireless Road West, Kennedy Avenue and Sturt Street. These lanes have been provided on one or both sides of the road where possible so that bicycle use is in the same direction as motor vehicle traffic. These designated bicycle lanes have been used where there is little demand for parking throughout the day.

An advisory lane indicates to road users the potential presence of cyclists and of the location where cyclists may be expected to ride on a road. An edge line has been marked between the left motor traffic lane and parking lane such as those on Shepherdson Road, Lake Terrace, Boandik Terrace, Gwendoline Street, Queens Avenue, Canavan Road and North Terrace. The purpose of the line is to encourage motor traffic to travel away from the left side of the road or from parked cars, and thereby maximise the space available for the riding of bicycles.

A simple quiz to help educate children and parents alike on basic road markings and signage can be downloaded from the below link.
