The new road layout to accommodate the 2-way cycle lane has made the lanes for other vehicles so narrow that drivers regularly straddle the centre line. This is especially so on refuse collection days when there is no space for the refuse truck to pull to the side and no place for other traffic to pass the truck for the length of the road from the railway line to the intersection of Sawyers Arms Road with Main North Road. Impatient drivers are passing the truck in the face of oncoming traffic. Space allocated for parking along the road is also contributing to the lanes now being so narrow that traffic often straddle the centre line in order to avoid colliding with car doors being opened.
