"Absolute disgrace. It is obvious the road design allowed that to happen but your report is simply rejected as if you are imagining it. What's worse is that James Congdon Drive is a relatively new road. It is on the path of the old railway line…"

"Please excuse my cynicism Chris - a byproduct of too many hours riding on Adelaide roads.  Although I mentioned councils in my original post, it could equally apply to other levels of government for the road they support."

"Granted Heather but you have reinforced the distinction between lobbying and deciding. I was responding to David's somewhat cynical comment by point out that for most bike lanes Councils are not the decision makers."
