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
"Amazingly, the bollard has already been removed!
I expect the dismount sign is there because it's still a potentially dangerous underpass - the path narrows significantly under the road bridge where the new concrete & steel pathway meets…"
"Glad to see the underpass finally open again. No more reversing car slalom through the Brickworks car park. It's a real shame that the old wooden path on the eastern side of the bridge has not been upgraded (I understand that Charles Sturt is…"
"I don't know if councils charge rent when builders occupy public space, but they should - it seems like it would be an easy & not unpopular way to help discourage 'unforeseen delays'.
Plus the path past Nazareth was in pristine…"
"It’s not just disappointing but nonsensical. It’s a simple matter of playing percentages – if I commute in peak hour on a busy road corridor, about 100-200 cars will drive or turn near me per day. If we somehow improved driving…"
"Last update I saw, linear path was supposed to be reopened in October. However the bridge widening was supposed to only take 4 months and ended up finishing about 18 months behind schedule, so I'd take that date with a very large grain of salt!"
"Done! I also noticed that Charles Sturt has a community survey/review open for their sections of the Bikedirect Network (including Linear Path, Coast Path & OH Greenway).
If the Coast Path is ever going to get completed through Tennyson, then…"
"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…"
