CYCLISTS BANNED FROM MIXED RUNNING SECTION OF LIGHT RAIL TRACK

Cyclists will be banned from riding along part of Newcastle’s light rail route from tomorrow.

Signs will go up overnight, advising riders not to venture down a 340-metre mixed running section in Scott Street.

It comes after a safety review, released today, that was prompted by the tragic death of a cyclist in July.

The study also took into consideration other accidents, where riders reported getting their wheels stuck in the tracks.
