"Yes, you're pretty much spot on. The peaks see two heavy flows and relatively small (and inconsistent) amounts of traffic from the other two directions.  The evening is not quite as bad as the morning, because the peak flow from Main Road…"

"Adding lights at Waite/Brighton would be a good move, perhaps at the Young St T-junction as well. If the central junction was done with lights rather than a roundabout, the Woolworths and Artisan lights could both shift to the intersection. "

"My alternative for the right turn from Main Road (coming from Glenalta) to Shepherds Hill Road is to turn right into the Foodland car park, ride through the path next to the Shell servo and cross at the Woolworths lights.  This is aided by the…"

Dave M replied to Michael Murray's discussion cycle hoops
"I agree, good idea when you have existing poles and don't need any more obstructions on a footpath. The lack of need to dig holes in the ground would be where the savings are, council work crews are very expensive.  The same company also…"

Dave M replied to Equal2lance2's discussion Are you allowed to ride in bus lanes?
"And for completeness, since this topic is about one of those bus lanes where regulation 13 applies: Usual notes apply - 'driver' includes 'rider' unless it explicitly says so, Rules means the Australian Road Rueles"

Dave M replied to Equal2lance2's discussion Are you allowed to ride in bus lanes?
"Which, like the footpath, is nice and wide after the traffic lights once the bus u-turn lane isn't there. I would line up in that lane and then move towards the left immediately upon getting the green light."

Hi Dave. Sorry, I did not notice your message until today. I'm not that techno savvy.

Thank you kindly for the offer but the tyres on my bike are 25 mm. Because I use it for recreation and commute, the cycle shop advised me to go a bit wider to deal with uneven road surfaces. Seems to work.

Thanks for your advice and input to the thread.

regards Rob (Simpson)
