"Can someone who cycles over this bridge explain how this gate thing works. I can't see the logic in it.

Hi Jeffrey, Welcome to Adelaide Cyclists. You might be interested in the AC group Commuters and, if you cycle in the city, Adelaide BUG which I coordinate.

I emailed DTEI and the reply was that it was satisfactory and to become a pedestrian and use the pedestrian crossing! How long does it take for some traffic planners to realise that cycling is a transport form?
