I am pleased to say that a couple of long standing issues for cyclists along my route to work have been addressed in the past couple of weeks:
Firstly, the "loading zone" outside Vale Park Primary School along Ascot Ave which had times conflicting with the bike lane has finally had the morning loading zone times removed. On a good day, I can be doing 60km along this stretch, and so to have cars parked in the bike lane was not good, but until now the drivers had a defense. Lets hope they follow up with some policing next term.
Secondly, since I have been riding to my current job in the city for over a decade, there has always been a big hump in the pavement from a tree root on the short stretch of path between Melbourne st and Mann Terrace in North Adelaide. The size of the hump was such that it posed a hazard for cyclists and I have clipped my pedals on it in the past. I have previously reported this issue and nothing had happened, but a week or so ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find the root had been removed and the path was smooth and flat.
After often reporting problems, I thought it would be good to report some good news.
