"So the BS that was the Citizen's Jury recommended the implementation of safe bike lanes.  Here is a prime example of DPTI paying scant regard for rider safety and zero improvement to providing attractive and safe solutions to riding a…"

"The bike lane proposal is rubbish and will increase the risk of cyclist injuries. The cheapest easiest solution that won't eliminate parking is to adopt filtered permeability - build a barrier to stop it from being a through route for cars,…"

"Great vid illustrating similar issues I have had. The truck partially parked in the bike lane would also make it impracticable to stay in the bike lane."

"I don't like riding down Rundle Street Kent Town - but its better than North Terrace.  This morning's interaction with a driver in a hurry to get to the red light was not unusual."

"The current bike lanes are horrible and dangerous and I don't see that this is going to be any improvement. I think the money would be better spent taking the dooring lanes out completely and putting big arse signage (sign posts and on the road…"

"Thanks for your comments so far.  Separated bike lanes would be preferable for cycling safety and comfort. However, this would require removing all the on-street parking and there is a strong desire from businesses on the street to maintain it.…"

"So another bike-lane right in the so called dooring zone of parked cars - how can that really be a good thing?? Please make a bike-lane that is not in the dooring zone of parked cars, please make a safe bike-lane."

David Southern replied to Colin Maher's discussion Seeking feedback – DPTI bicycle lane proposal on Rundle St, Kent Town
"It looks as if the east-bound bike lane will be within the dooring zone.  Perhaps parking could be prohibited during evening peak, which would lessen the dooring risk.  Also, the speed limit could be reduced (30? 40?) along the whole of…"
