Green areas for bikes at the lights

New safety areas for bikes at 3 intersections around Launceston: Elphin Rd/Cypress St (Scotch College), George Town Rd/Newnham Dve and Mowbray at Beatty St. These are worldwide-accepted treatments to make it safer for cyclists at intersections. When lights are red, you move into the green box in front of cars, to give you a safe place to wait and a highly visible head start on the cars, with "wobble room" as you get going. Cars must not stop in the green box.
