Cycle- friendly speed bumps
A concept plan released last week proposes two ''cycle-friendly'' speed bumps at the bottom of Grand Drive, the one-way 3.8 kilometre road which circles the park and has been used as a training track by cycling groups for more than 80 years.
Along with the speed humps will come two crossings and a 20 kilometer per hour speed limit to slow riders so that parents and children can cross safely.
With more than 11 million visitors a year, Centennial Park is already one of the most heavily used parks in Australia.
Thechief executive of the Centennial and Moore Park Trust, Kim Ellis, said that in the past two years there have been 61 accidents on Grand Drive involving bikes and cars, a third of which required ambulances.
While the plan has angered cyclists, Mr. Ellis feels obliged to make the park safer and balance the needs of all users of the park.
