In a past district plan, the road shoulder was intended to be widened to a minimum of 1.5 metres during road works to make it safer for cyclists. Recent road maintenance has had the opposite effect and now the road, as well as having the old pinch points on corners and bridges (sometimes combined) has, in places, a shoulder with fresh loose gravel, rumble strips that have been painted several times next to each other, uneven pavement on what used to be a smooth shoulder and on occasion large blobs of paint forcing cyclists into the traffic stream. The rumble strips are also sometimes painted where they are both not needed (next to a barrier) and where they take up what little shoulder there is which also forces cyclists into the traffic stream. Basically, instead of the road getting safer for cyclists after road works, it's getting worse.
