As part of the cycle lane development in Upper Queen Street, we have had a judder bar installed outside our driveway. People already leave that driveway slowly as there is a footpath directly in front, with a building on the left so a bit of a blind corner, there have not been accidents in my 15 years living here, so how does a judder bar on the other side of the cycleway protect the cyclists? Plus if it takes longer to turn into the driveway as you need a larger gap because you have to slow down so much to go over the judder bar, you then have traffic coming towards you, you are also blocking traffic coming through the intersection after passing Canada street on the left side, there is no flush median in the section of the road outside of our property. So you are blocking one lane when you are turning in. This was already a congestion point at busy times. I asked the council why there was no notification of the judder bar (not answered) but I have been told that it's a "low profile" "speed cushion" - what is outside of our property is a judder bar, it is high and difficult to drive over, jarring even when driving slowly, how is this safe on a main road? Who would I contact to be able to advise if it is the correct specs? Thanks
