"Personally, as a pedestrian on shared paths, I loathe being rung at. It feels like "get out of my way". Personally I only ring when I come up behind someone filling the whole path or behaving erratically. Everyone else I…"
My criticism of 'Greenways' is by no means meant to denigrate how useful these routes are. I've just always seen them as being the politically easy routes, and they have often been promoted as being 'following…"
The problem with this is that the 2-tier provision just ends up with 2 lots of sub-standard provision. Shared use is very often just a footpath with a fancy name, and the junctions are always rubbish. Paint on a road shared with…"
"The first problem with this whole question is the presumption that new cycling routes will have to be 'Greenways'. Whilst much of the first set of Greenways are good, safe, fast and direct, there is a limit to how many potential…"
"Of course the driveways excuse is a massive cop-out. Protected cycle-ways are ubiquitous in the Netherlands, and they have both drives and car parking.
I've already given feedback - hence my finding out about the 1000 character limit the…"
"The more I look at the detail of this, the more I dislike it. Or at least, the more I realise that it could be done much better:
I appreciate that the westbound cycle lane is now protected by parking - this is as it should be, though it's…"
"It totally depends on what kind of bike you have. Many people in high cycling countries ride basic old bikes. If I was just riding the 2km to my local station I would probably use my old hybrid if I didn't trust the…"
I know it's just an anecdote, but when my wife (who rides a bike every 1-2 years typically) had to go to the city recently, she asked me if there was anywhere to lock a bike at our local station (it's about 2km away), as the car park…"
"Coming from the UK, where major reservoirs are usually used for recreation (sailing kayaking, cycling, walking etc), I was gobsmacked that you can hardly get close to any South Australian water infrastructure when I arrived. I can't see…"
"I'm not sure if the path from the end of Magazine Road is open at the moment (it's very good gravel as I remember), but there is a temporary path running from Henschke Street that joins it further north. The section of the path near…"
"That's still not a very good excuse for neglecting to allow for wind loading on the screen wall. The cantilever arrangement itself did not fail - just the means of securing the bikeway to it.
As I understand it, the decisive argument in…"
"Remembering what this crossing is like during Fringe and Clipsal, it will be impossible to navigate on a bike during these periods.
Why is it that when traffic engineers don't have a clue about cyclists they just mix them with…"
