What you reckon pplz?

At first, I thought they were going for a Mondermannesque shared space - especially with the cyclist bit, but then the paint arrived (today?)

 

The paint makes the intentions pretty clear.

Do, so you think it'll work? ish?

Wondering how many bike crashes due to bikes 'falling' of that 'step' in front of the library avoiding walkers....

 

About to ride up and have a gander but, am I imagining it or do those rumble strips not extend the whole way across?

I think the idea is the space beyond the 'piano keys' is for getting on/off a tram.

I've ridden it a few times in the past few days, but this arvo was the first time I've done it in peak.

There were four trams in a row, all stopped so passengers could get on/off.  I'm not sure how much was prompted by the performers/umpires/coaches there for this, and next week, but all the cyclists seemed to wait while tram doors were open, and then once shut, filtered forwards at a low speed until it the trams started, and then it was normal riding.

Seemed to work quite well.

The other non-peak times then yeah, there's been the odd meandering pedestron but then, that was pretty normal for that stretch anyway.

Going off the gutter/step. meh.  It'll happen, but I can't see it being that much of a statistic.
