Would you cycle over Claudelands Bridge?

The team Reporter from Hamilton Press

A cycle-friendly makeover to Claudelands Bridge could increase risks for cyclists, a Hamilton courier driver believes.

He says they're going to make it "100 times worse", as the concrete barriers are too low and similar in colour to the road so they won't be seen. He says "he believes the cyclist will clip them and tip straight into traffic".

Do you agree? Are you a cyclist who uses the bridge?
