Council has updated 29 roundabouts and progressing works on a further six to increase safety for cyclists.
Council manages 157 roundabouts across the region, many being single lane with no dedicated cycle lane, which can lead to confusion as to who has right of way and where the cyclists are supposed to ride.
The roundabout safety program and associated improvement works, which have been rolled out over the past three years, aim to provide improved clarity as to who has right of way, as well as provide safer passage for cyclists either through the roundabout or via off-road paths.
Council has budgeted $1.76 million over three years for the program, with Federal Government Black Spot funding of $935,000 received to use towards the initiative.
