Algona Rd "ideal" opinion[edit]

I'm moving the following here as it's an uncited opinion and therefore obviously unencyclopedic. (It originally appeared after the first sentence about Algona Rd.)

"This road is the ideal road to connect the Kingston Bypass to Blackmans Bay as it was originally constructed for such as task and has available space dedicated for a second carriageway"

If a working citation can be found, it should be added, and the spirit of the above text, minus the POV, could be expressed, for example, as:

"According to [cited source], Algona Road is the ideal road..."

Accuracy of route description[edit]

The area of the bypass in question

In regards to the route description....
While I may be wrong on a technicality, I have my doubts as to whether on ramps/merging lanes qualify the Kingston Bypass for Dual carriageway status in the area of Summerleas Road. The second lane exists purely for traffic merging from the interchange as opposed to overtaking/passing opportunities. Evad37's thoughts on this matter would be appreciated.

@Wiki ian: Dual carriageway doesn't actually have anything to do with the number of lanes. The dual carriageway refers to separation of the carriageways (which may have any number of lanes) by a central median. If it was a single carriageway, then it wouldn't have that grassed area (median) between the northbound and southbound lanes. - Evad37 [talk] 13:27, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
@Evad37: Thank you for the lesson in Humility. I feel kind of stupid and am going to hang my head in shame. Forgive my stupidity, Wiki ian 01:57, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
