I'm guessing that the work done on Victoria Street north of Barton will be the template: convert the rightmost lane into an unprotected car-width bike-lane - a very wide buffer protects the rider instead of any physical barrier. This keeps the lane "fallow" thanks to its minimal load, but it can still be ploughed as a car-lane and they can use it for cars during road-work on the car lanes. It's the cheapest way to take a lane out of commission and serve cylists. I imagine we'll see this treatment appear throughout the over-built industrial roads in the north-east end of town.

Although I'm still totally confused why the bike-lane starts at Barton and why Wellington didn't get the same treatment - they were re-built within a year of each other, and there are now obvious benefits to connecting to Cannon.
