This road is generally good for cycling as it is wide with a painted median. But there is a traffic island in the middle of a long straight section. As far as I can tell the traffic island serves no purpose other that creating an unnecessary pinch point where drivers overtaking cyclists are unable to give the cyclist adequate room. Considerate drivers slow down and wait until they can pass safely but not all drivers are considerate :)
