Seems there is a call for vehicular road lanes to be "pop up bike lanes" .. or something like that.

Due to Corvid-19

I sure have noticed an up tick in cyclist numbers!

Just don't read the typical comments on the adelaidenow article mentioning pop up bike lanes!

Ross, thanks for the links, which I have added to the pending BUG Enews.

And an interesting follow up article:

https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/european-cities-expand-bike-lan...

"When residents of Europe's major cities finally emerge from weeks of lockdowns later this month, they'll be met with at least one enduring change from the pandemic: miles and miles of new bike lanes."

Wish our leaders could be so forward thinking.

At least one ACC Councillor is getting some publicity on it
