Do you have any local examples to post on this discussion?
There is an alternative topic for cycling facilities you like or want called 'Design For Cyclists' at

with photo "In Wollongong last week and saw this . . . banning cyclists from a cycleway!"
I have copied it to this resource.
On 14-May2012 J the B posted at http://www.adelaidecyclists.com/forum/topics/latest-cycling-news-fr... with photos of the new bicycle lane on Military Road, near Bower Road. I have copied the photos to this resource.
erm, yes. This is my daily commute (and others of course) - as well as being used by hundreds of cyclists each weekend. Laughable, really - shows a complete lack of understanding of how people use bikes. I suspect they couldn't resolve the issue. This corner worked better before they altered the roundabout. Bad design, with the cycle lane an afterthought, instead of part of the planning process.
It's great that the authority is extending cycling lanes along Military Rd. They just need to be more switched on at roundabouts. Aren't there any town planners out there that ride a bike?!
Simon, my impression from the photos is that the travel lanes are not wide enough for a bicycle alongside of a car. Can you answer this?
Very obvious that the bicycle lane ends but DPTI also omitted to install an 'end of bicycle lane' sign.
Tonight I emailed the DPTI project manager on behalf of Adelaide BUG.
Today at 9pm I emailed the DPTI project manager and have already received a positive response.
"Thanks for the email - I was made aware of the error this late this afternoon and have instructed our painting contractor to correct this asap. There was an error in application in the line marking which differed from what the design is for this roundabout.
Appreciate you taking the time to let me know and will get this corrected as a matter of priority.
Thank you once again."
