The Epping Rd cycleway between Centennial Av and Orion Rd has only been open for a few weeks. The cyleway is painted bright green to denote its purpose, and more signage will follow. Despite this some residents of Epping Rd are treating it as a new parking area. This makes it difficult and dangerous for cyclists to squeze throught in the gap between the cars and the concrete strip next to the bus lane. It is even worsre if cyclists travelling in opposite directions need to pass here.
This is very selfish behaviour by the car owners. Before the cycleway, there was no street parking in this section of Epping Rd. All these properties have garages, but residents insist on parking their cars in the path of cyclists. This cycleway is one of the few dedicated facilities in the area and it is being spoilt by a minority of lazy car drivers.
