There is a new 7.00 am - 9.00 am bike lane on the south of Rundle Street from Fullarton - College Lane. It runs where there has always been car parking in the past. I tried it for the first time today at 8.55 am and it was full of parked cars. Has anyone tried it earlier ? Is it free or are the drivers taking awhile to get used to it being there ? I guess it isn't fully sign posted yet although the signs at the beginning and end are there.
Friday 9 December, 8.15 am. 14 cars parked in bike lane.
I think those signs must have gone up today. It's a different sign in the photo Paul J posted from this morning.
Hi Peter. No they are in a different part of the street. The bike lanes on the southern side of Rundle Street are
(A) Fullarton Road - College Lane -- new 7-9 bike lane in gutter
(B) College Lane to the pedestrian island near Australia Post -- 24 hour bike lane in door zone
(C) Australia Post -- Dequetteville Terrace -- old 7-9 bike lane in gutter
Those signs have been up for awhile in that (C) section which is the old 7-9 bike lane.
I might borrow that idea if the council's work doesn't have the desired effect.
I think it would be a better if it said "a person's life" ... just my two cents
I hear ya! According to some comments in the Sadvertiser. Cyclists are not people, just things on the road that get in their way. We're little better than bugs to some:(
I still cant believe they allow "Run em over with my bullbar!" type comments :( What the f**k are the editors thinking?
Went past at 9.05 today -- so out of the active time. About 8 cars parked and 4 of them with tickets/warnings attached to their passenger side wipers.
