"It reminds me of that old joke. A motorist, a cyclist and a pedestrian sit down at a table that has a big box of chocolate biscuits on it. The motorist takes all the biscuits except for one - he then leans over and whispers to the pedestrian -…"
"Yes, that's absolutely true. However, the argument that current usage does not support providing infrastructure is exactly how we maintain the current woeful state of cycling infrastructure in this city. Looking backwards is not a way to lead…"
"The space just isn't there. The options are (further) narrow the footpath, narrow the bikeway, remove the hotel drop-off zone, or remove a car lane.
The relative volumes of car and bicycle traffic tell me that it's better overall to narrow…"
"No, that's not what I mean at all. The image above is a bikeway, not a pedestrian fare, so there is no right of way for pedestrians any more than there would be for those same pedestrians crossing over Frome Street at that point. The…"

"It looks like the car is stopping to drop the woman off? Why on earth do it there when there's all that space in front of them?
There's no sound on that video (at least not for me), but hopefully you informed her politely that this is a…"
"Why would you park there with all the room in front ? I'm not sure what is planned for that section up to the lights. This plan that Dan got from DTPI and posted earlier in the thread seems to suggest two car parking places ? So…"
">but I don't see how a separate cycle light can possibly be a negative.
Since my words don't work here are pictures:-
Both are examples of where being in a motor vehicle is better than being on a bicycle due to separate light cycles…"
