Some insights into coloured bike lanes:

Generally most treatments in Australia cost around $40 - $65 per square metre to supply and install, and often there will be further costs such as traffic control. Many local governments which have installed the treatments recently have not yet completed any maintenance. The Sunshine Coast Regional Council estimates that the cost to retrofit worn areas in their region will be within $60,000 – $100,000 over a two year period (Walker 2010). The larger BCC estimated that their current maintenance regime which includes LATM schemes, school zones and bicycle facilities costs $0.75M in the 2009/2010 financial year and has been increasing each year (Lee 2010). PNCC was annually remarking their pavement with coloured surface paint at a cost of $130,000 (NZD) per annum (Morris 2010). However this has been reviewed and a more strategic approach is undertaken, where only areas subject to high traffic are repainted at a cost of $50,000 (NZD) per annum (Morris 2010).
