Brad Thompson, of Downer, prepares to paint sharrows on George St, Dunedin.

Sharrows indicate to motorists and cyclists the lane is to be shared, as well as the best place for cyclists to ride in the lane.

Downer staff will paint nearly 50 of the symbols on parts of George St and King Edward St this week, depending on the weather.

The Dunedin City Council is part of a five-month trial for the New Zealand Transport Agency, to test whether the markings should become legal road signs in New Zealand.
