The Australian Road Rules 187(2) make it an offence to stop in a bicycle lane. On the Duthy Street bicycle lane (door lane), the layout means that trucks, fat SUVs and badly parked cars often sit…Continue

"Strictly it's not a bike lane outside of the stated hours, but part of the driving lane. The magic paint isn't magic during that time."

"I sometimes use it on the trip home to Belair, to avoid the King W door zone run you get at rush hour. The crappy Cross Rd options are the bigger problem with that route tho."

"1. Have two lanes at each road rather than 4. 2. That leaves space for cycle safe lanes and improves pedestrian access. 3. Massive whinge because car flow is not the priority. 4. Improve public transport so people use that or cycle instead. The…"

"Yes, you're pretty much spot on. The peaks see two heavy flows and relatively small (and inconsistent) amounts of traffic from the other two directions.  The evening is not quite as bad as the morning, because the peak flow from Main Road…"

Dave M replied to Keith's discussion Blackwood roundabout
"Adding lights at Waite/Brighton would be a good move, perhaps at the Young St T-junction as well. If the central junction was done with lights rather than a roundabout, the Woolworths and Artisan lights could both shift to the intersection. "
