It's a good thing when the Lord Mayor is doing a public presentation with the head of the governement's Dept of Transport.
Here is some more background from the City Messenger: http://city-messenger.whereilive.com.au/news/story/plan-for-safer-c...
The council this week adopted its draft Integrated Movement Strategy, which aims to make the city more pedestrian and cycling-friendly over the next decade.
The plan includes investigating building bike paths between footpaths and roads and a network of shared pathways for cyclists and pedestrians through the parklands.
Under the plan, the council also proposes to:
- widen bike lanes to 1.7m where possible;
- urge developers to include showers, bike parking, lockers and change rooms in building applications;
- introduce “bike boxes” at intersections where cyclists can stop in front of cars; and
- identify locations for bike hubs, similar to the one trialled in Hindmarsh Square over summer.
