Shared pro­posal

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I WOULD like to sug­gest that the pro­posed bi­cy­cle path along the Air­lie Beach fore­shore be moved on to Main St.

To en­hance Main St for the en­joy­ment of the ever-grow­ing num­ber of tourists and cy­clists, it should be a one-way west-east street. More same park­ing can be es­tab­lished.

Ac­cess to busi­nesses can be en­hanced. The cur­rent traf­fic lane in front of the wa­ter­ing holes should be con­verted to a shared pedes­trian/cy­clist lane.

This would vastly en­hance the Bernd Wendlandt Flame­tree safety of pedes­tri­ans want­ing to cross the now nar­rower road.

Re­move the threat of con­flict be­tween la­goon visi­tors and cy­clists and not en­croach on the prime la­goon area used by tourists.
