Roundabout infrastructure

These pics show the new bike lane through the roundabout near Marketown. I am not sure what I think of this infrastructure. Roundabouts are notoriously dangerous for cyclists and, while this one provides a very defined place for cyclists to ride when riding in this direction, it does not do so well on the other side of the road and it does not last for very long. I have shown the beginning and end of this bike lane and it is less than 100 metres I would say. Beside the road you can see the nice wide footpath, which I used when travelling in the opposite direction into town, as did the other cyclists I saw. I hope this new “lane” is not just a waste of money.
