Hi all from a long time lurker on this forum (since the beginning of this year or so) – just a heads up if you ride along linear path from the western suburbs regularly.While riding to work this…Continue
"Thanks for the update ... *sigh* I guess that means users of linear path will have to put up with that dreadful narrow & slippery section of wooden boards past the cemetery for a few more years. The council is probably hoping it can hold out…"
"Yeah, there's a bridge there & another bridge a bit further west. The river bank is quite steep around there, so the degree of difficulty for bush bashing is fairly high :) One other detour option would be to use Beatty St & Hartley…"
"This seems completely unnecessary. All the work involving heavy equipment (excavation, foundations, frames) has already been done over the last 2 months, and no path closure was required. It feels like the builder has decided it would be a tiny bit…"
"yes, I encountered the surprise pathworks this morning - an excavator was digging up the path already. From the west there are a couple of detour signs at the Morphett & then Deeds rd pathway exits. It wouldn't have have hurt to stick a…"
"It's not a long walk from North Terrace, but it might be too far for many parents. Adelaide High has good bus connections right outside its doors from all over Adelaide, this new school has one, infrequent bus going past it. I think its fairly…"
"Until mid last year it used to be very busy with foot traffic - Uni students milling around the med school & people hanging around the dental school entrance smoking before their appointments etc. Now that's all moved over to Nth Terrace,…"
"I've always wondered about those two little side roads that went into the old IMVS car parks off Frome Road - are they considered private roads (they lack street names) & if so, how are road rules (ie pedestrians crossing on red lights)…"
"The underpass under South Road was open a little bit ahead of schedule this morning & the path leading to and from it has been swept clean. There's some temporary fencing on the western side as you go through the underpass so its currently…"
"This has been my preferred detour route:
Eastbound I use the roundabout and then Ashwin Pde. Westbound I use the footpath (ride courteously etc) on the north side of Ashwin until I can turn right into the brickworks carpark. That way there's no…"
"It's a pity the amount requested is only $150,000 - good lighting along linear path costs about $5-10,000 per light, so assuming a 30m spacing between lights, that's about 500m of path.
The bits I'd really like to see lit are mostly…"
"Hopefully it is temporary - not just for the sake of linear path, but if there's a repeat of last years flooding the infill could cause problems - there are only a couple of 2m diameter culverts at the base for river flow. It's quite hard…"
"Unfortunately I dont think you could fit a poly tunnel under the bridge anymore - the under-bridge area on the western side of South Rd has been partly filled in with rubble and a road/ford (temporary I hope) has been built from bank to bank so that…"
"Also look out for the moor hens around the river through the city. They're not aggressive but they will panic & blindly run right into your path as you ride by. No matter which way you swerve to avoid them, they seem to manage to turn and…"
