Enraged motorists fling a group of cyclists to block traffic and refuse to use a newly built $ 100 million cycle path – but not everyone is on their side
- Motorists have beaten a group of cyclists because they do not use a newly built bicycle lane
- Not everyone agrees with the worries, because it is legal and a car would do the same
- The cycle path is part of the $ 100 million Woolloongabba Bikeway project
Enraged motorists slammed a group of cyclists who used the road instead of a newly constructed cycle path – but not everyone is on their side.
Taken from the corner of Stanley Street and Annerley Road in Brisbane, the group showed the left-hand lane as they prepared to turn right, preventing the traffic from going straight ahead.
The video was posted on Reddit with the caption: & # 39; Stanley St Bikeway, $ 100 million well spent. & # 39;
Recordings made at the meeting of Stanley Street and Annerley Road, in Brisbane, showed the group in the left-hand lane while the straight-ahead light went from green to red, while the right-turn light remained red
The cycle path is part of the Woolloongabba Bikeway project, an initiative that started in 2016 and that costs a total of $ 100 million.
Via the bicycle lane, cyclists can turn right to enter Annerley Road – where cyclists are turning – or cross both roads to turn onto Stanley Street on the other side.
One person wrote: & # 39; I usually like to give cyclists a break, because a lack of decent infrastructure has been a problem for years and it still is in general, but this would even annoy me. & # 39;
& # 39; I walk this route daily from Mater Hill along Annerley Rd. Can confirm as with other cyclists taking the correct turnoff to the other side of Annerley Rd and there is a junction further to bring them back to the same side, & another said.
A third wrote: & # 39; It is legal, but some [a small minority] cyclists must realize that this road has been narrowed considerably to make room for the new cycle path, and that by continuing to use it, everyone make it uncomfortable for no good reason. & # 39;
Not everyone agreed with one person who said it was perfectly legal for the group to be in line.

A picture of the cycle path showed that it continued on Stanley Street and on the right side of Annerley Road, against the traffic. There is also another intersection with which cyclists can reach the other side of Stanley Road
& # 39; However, the protected bicycle lane does not take them where they want to go. Why would they use it ?, & # 39; asked.
Another said: & # 39; I'm a little late for the party here, but they're not doing anything wrong. And I'm not sure how uncomfortable the driver would be, apart from perhaps a five to ten second delay. & # 39;
& # 39; If these guys are in the designated area, it means they are crossing one road, another road and then continuing their journey. If they stay on the far left, they can turn the traffic and continue. No one breaks rules, & someone said.
