1. 30-Oct-2009 & 4-Nov-2009. Cyclist safety compromised by old, new and pending fences. Vehicle safety barrier being installed on Victoria Bridge in Montefiore Road. But too close to bicycle lane, in apparent contravention of Austroads. Heather wrote to Minister Conlon, plus ACC and DTEI’s Office of Cycling & Walking. Pointed out that this is not the first time Austroads has been ignored. Examples are Albert Bridge in Frome Road and car parking for the National Wine Centre of Australia off Hackney Road. Received reply that the buffer zone for cyclist safety did not apply on Victoria Bridge.

3. Comments on trial "Copenhagen Lane" in Sturt St? – Posted on 18-Nov-2009 by Patrick Sunter –

4. On 14-Dec-2009 Gas Natural declined to take Heather’s report of cycling hazard caused by gas infrastructure, ie missing lid forming pothole at intersection of King William Street and Franklin Street, to left of road where cyclists may ride. On 21-Dec-2009 Heather sent letter to the Gas Ombudsman, who provided contact details of Envestra. Envestra said that Gas Natural should take such reports. Told hazard would be fixed in Jan-2010 but at Nov-2010 still not fixed.

5. On 2-Mar-2010 cyclist count organised by Bicycle Victoria in several states. SA included for the first time, that is around the perimeter of Adelaide. Heather made notes on the increased difficulty and hazard of crossing Fitzroy Terrace.

6. On 6-Apr-2010 Heather contacted ACC, asking for new bicycle parking near 180 O’Connell Street (Cafe Palazzo) and 181 O’Connell Street (Piccadilly Cinema). Heather thanked ACC for acting on her request to remark the shared path near the Adelaide Aquatic Centre. Some pedestrians need guidance on how to share a path.

7. On 8-Apr-2010 Heather wrote to DTEI’s Office of Cycling & Walking with request to improve safety for cyclists crossing Fitzroy Terrace. For example, paint ‘keep clear’ on the road where numerous vehicles illegally obstruct the bicycle passageways. Refer Australian Road Rules, section 198. Copy sent to BISA. DTEI did not respond. Ditto for when Heather wrote to Transport’s BikeSouth in 2003 with same request.

8. Bike path line markings (lack of) – Posted on 16-Apr-2010 by Sean Smith – – Includes shared paths in the North Adelaide parklands near the Adelaide Aquatic Centre – Includes muddled bicycle lane marking in Jeffcott Street near Pennington Terrace.

14. New 'Green' Bike lane – Posted on 13-Jul-2010 by Sue G – – Includes Morphett Street bicycle lane

15. On 19-Jul-2010 ACC responded to Heather’s email of 13-Jul-2010, saying that it will discuss with DTEI the request for colouring green the bicycle lane in Morphett Street, between Hindley Street and Adelaide TAFE. I have seen too many vehicles encroach into this bicycle lane when taking this corner.

16. Morphett Street bicycle lane discussion – 27-Aug-2010 – Heather surveyed long bicycle lane of Jeffcott Road - Jeffcott Street - Morphett Street, from Fitzroy Terrace to South Terrace, and recognised more issues. Also started a discussion on Adelaide Cyclists. Several cyclists contacted ACC re cycling safety issues and ACC agreed to investigate.

17. Bonython Park and North Terrace – Posted on 29-Aug-2010 by Sophia MacRae – – Sophia wants better cycling facilities on North Terrace

18. Adelaide PARK(ing) DAY is Sept 17 – Posted on 31-Aug-2010 by Angus Kingston –

19. Victoria Square Bicycle Hub - Your input please? – Posted on 31-Aug-2010 by Luke Hallam –

20. Morphett Street Bike Lane safety – Posted on 1-Sep-2010 by snappy don – – Includes muddled bicycle lane marking in Jeffcott Street near Pennington Terrace remarked – Includes Kintore Avenue - Victoria Drive intersection cycling hazard.

21. On 2-Sep-2010 Heather emailed ACC that roadworks in Rundle Street had left the southern bicycle lane with only 420mm of useable space, with the rest of it concrete sloping towards the gutter. On 3-Sep-2010 ACC replied that it would be checked.

22. Prospect Road….Never Again!!!! – Posted on 13-Sep-2010 by Sue G – – Includes difficult to cross Fitzroy Terrace.

28. Cycling safer after ACC removes parking – Posted on 14-Oct-2010 by heather –

29. By 15-Oct-2010 Heather noticed that ACC had marked one of the two missing sections of the Morphett Street bicycle lane. This is in the NE quadrant of Whitmore Square, where cars turning left / east in to Wright Street, tended to dangerously cut cyclist off. ACC intends to make further improvements to this bicycle lane, after Heather encouraged AC cyclists to discuss the cycling hazards, and contact ACC. –

30. On 26-Oct-2010 Heather discussed with ACC some possible cycling facilities. Request for buffer zone with ‘candlestick’ posts between travel lane and bicycle lane on Victoria Bridge over Torrens Lake. Travel lanes near minimum width so even if narrowed, may not be enough space for a buffer. A slower advisory speed on Albert Bridge near the zoo will be considered. ACC will ask DTEI next week for permission to install yellow rubber separators between travel lane and bicycle lane in Whitmore Square and where Kintore Avenue meets Victoria Drive. These separators are still being trialled in Melbourne.
