Please post Adelaide hazards here so we can discuss and I report to ACC.

I understand that this month a cyclist was seriously inured when he hit wires newly erected across a cycling route.

Flew into Adelaide this arvo, noticed some works in the area outlined below that looks like a new road or path.

Would be good if it is joining the area where the cars are parked to the existing path as the gravel section between the end of Gaol road and the bike path gets a bit ordinary when its wet.

it's the hen and the egg - which one came first? In Denmark (where I am from) we had the oil crisis in 1973 - due to the Israeli war (before I can remember) which not only led to car-free sundays (for a year) but also thermo windows, insulation and general awareness about being less dependent of energy. This country hasn't yet got the head around this concept: Thermo windows is a luxury item, insulation is something you might do in new houses and car is the 'only' way to get around. As long as people keeps voting for who does the least damage and don't interfer with the established way of thinking, then nothing will change.

It was actually the other way round in The Netherlands. In the 1970s there was an oil shortage with petrol rationing in Australia. Australia ignored the writing on the wall. The US seems to have adopted the approach of fighting wars to access oil. The Netherlands started designing road infrastructure to encourage cycling and it worked. Prof Fred Wegman, a road safety expert from The Netherlands, spoke in Adelaide in 2010 and 2011. He said he could recall when his country took this approach, so it should be feasible for Australia to follow suit.

It would be easier to advocate in Australia for better cycling infrastructure than  repeal the helmet laws first. Finally our politicians our recognising peak oil, climate change and traffic congestion, but still reluctant to take action. You could give them a nudge.
