The Australian Road Rules 187(2) make it an offence to stop in a bicycle lane. On the Duthy Street bicycle lane (door lane), the layout means that trucks, fat SUVs and badly parked cars often sit…Continue

"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. "

Blackwood roundabout

So I went to the drop in session on the Blackwood roundabout upgrade held by DPTI Transport last night. The project team rep told me that 4 traffic lanes on each of the 4 roads was a non-negotiable starting point for the design. Given this, there is very little room for any changes to the concept design. There can be no concessions to pedestrians except at the church, and no concessions to cyclist safety.Because the project team is a traffic team at DPTI, their objectives are maximising…See More
