Support - Particular attention needs to be given to the connection with Ainsworth St: this junction has very poor visibility. The proposed route for the Chisholm Trail will add a lot of new cycle traffic turning right into Ainsworth St. It would be far preferable to align the northern entrance/exit from the depot site with Ainsworth St so that cycle traffic in both directions has good visibility. Giving north-south traffic priority here (with give-way lines on Hooper St) could might also improve safety.

Failure to do this could mean that cyclists cut off the corner by diverting between the apartment blocks to join the pedestrian route, which does align with Ainsworth St.
