"Actually Heather, I would add "bad hair day" as a disadvantage for MHL. Whenever I come of the bike, my hair is always shaped along the grooves of the helmet... Not a good look for Friday night dancing."

"A slight narrowing of all lanes (including bike lanes) would be enough to get it past the dining area you showed on the previous page. Weaving everything across a little and removing the filter lane for right turns could also get it around there."

"Thanks for that. Relevant points: * There's nothing to support the petition's claim that 90% of on-street parking will be lost. And if some angle parking is lost it's no big deal, at least at the eastern end (Pulteney to Hutt St),…"

"Found it: "Flinders and Franklin streets, by contrast, are already more popular with cyclists, feature no bus stops and 80 per cent more end-of-trip facilities in adjacent buildings for cyclists. The route also has a greater potential for…"

"People will take their driving cues from the environment and drive to the speed they feel comfortable at. Narrowing lanes and reducing the number of them subconciously 'tricks' drivers into slowing down."

Wayne B replied to Henry's discussion NSW to scrap rego for some motorists
"Total national revenue from road use was $27.8B in 2013-14, whereas only $75B has been committed to infrastructure spending (not limited to roads). So 75% is about right, going to general…"

"with the amount of traffic in ADL surely the city could stand to loose a few 4-lane streets. Just move the bikeway onto the left lane.... I'm sure it would convince a few people to leave their car out of the city & then more 4-lane streets…"

Peter B replied to Wayne B's discussion Flinders & Franklin to be killed off?
"Thanks for that. But it seems to only directly address parking on Frome St. (Where it says it reduces by 20%, but I'm not sure whether that's 20% of pre-bikeway levels or 20% of 2016 levels). But that document says there's going to be…"

"Maybe they're right about losing their outdoor dining area. Judging by this photo from Google Street View, a Frome Street style bikeway would go right through their outdoor dining area, which would be a pity. "
