Dunedin's State Highway 1 cycle lanes will be officially opened tomorrow.

The $8 million NZ Transport Agency project that developed cycle lanes through central and north Dunedin began in late 2017.

It was proposed following deaths of cyclists in 2011 and 2012 on the one-way system, and includes concrete barriers to separate cyclists from cars and trucks.

North Dunedin MP David Clark will officially open the cycleway in a ceremony at the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, with representatives of the NZTA, the Dunedin City Council and others involved with the project.
