The work zone for the Plenty Road upgrade through Mill Park is to be avoided by riders.
It is a construction site with no bike lanes, changed operating conditions and drivers who will behave unpredictably.
There are reports of riders—deciding to chance the work zone rather than taking the bike detour—getting themselves into scary situations.
The detour is a little long and convoluted, but it is well signed, with one for north bound riders and one for south bound.
The works are between McKimmies Road and Bridge Inn Road.
When completed there will be off-road and on-road facilities for riders.
