Nelson - St Vincent Street (bi-directional) separated cycleway

A bi-directional separated cycle facility was constructed on St Vincent Street in Nelson in 2014.  Users of this facility are required to give way at all priority side roads along its length due to the roadway definition within the Road User Rule.  The Post implementation safety audit report [PDF, 2.5 MB] notes that the resulting situation is very complex for cyclists as they must essentially survey 270o to look for opposing traffic and determine whether they must give way.  The safety audit report notes that over time, as cyclist volumes increase and legislation changes, it may be appropriate to change the priority of the facility at the side road intersections.
