As a recent “immigrant” to Canberra I am bemused and a little concerned to see great swaths of green paint slathered on the road.
I’m told this is to protect cyclists but I question the effectiveness of the colour green, it seems to just blend into the background.
I cant help but think that so much paint cant be good for the environment either, and the money would be better spent improving parking facilities around town.
I do wonder as well, on Belconnen Drive just near Turner (correct suburb?), the road has a combination of green and then red – do the colours mean something to long term residents, or did they run out of one colour?
