Some Concrete Improvements for Melbourne…


Rathdowne Street is a major cycling route connecting the northern suburbs of Melbourne into the CBD. Despite being host to a steady stream of cyclists every weekday morning in particular, it had a particularly dangerous stretch approaching the major intersection with Victoria St just next to the Carlton Gardens and Royal Exhibition Building.

Cyclists previously had to weave across a lane of left turning traffic.

Recently a separated lane was installed all the way to the intersection, so cyclists are now protected from motor vehicles by a substantial concrete kerb.

This inspired local cycling advocate Tom Flood @tomflood1 to pen the following on Twitter:

Stronger than any helmet. Louder than any bell. Brighter than any colour. More effective than any tech. It’s… Concrete!* Yes, that’s right folks. And the good news is this miracle product already exists. * Political will sold separately.
