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.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
