Marion Council elections

Since this has happened for a few other councils... has anyone done any research on the candidates for Marion Council elections, regarding their policies on cycling?Continue

Fooled by the weather radar

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jilden May 30, 2018. 10 Replies

Tonight a glance at weather radar looked all clear (very much like this screenshot from after I got home). But it had me fooled, and it steadily drizzled pretty well all the way home. So does rain…Continue

Is it legal to ride on the footpath when there is a bicycle lane present?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Keith Apr 24, 2018. 4 Replies

The question says it all! Today a police officer cautioned me. (He said this applies to footpaths, not shared paths).I tried to politely say that isn't how I'd seen the law presented, but I let it go…Continue

"I'm not a commuter so never go that way in rush hour, but I've ridden through there often enough. Either side of the station the path is fine, alongside it's just a matter of slowing down and watching for pedestrians. No different to…"

"I have just noticed that the same situation happens on the existing path, adjacent to Ascot Park train station. I don't usually go that far south: does anyone know what do most cyclists do there - stay on the path, or use the road?"

"I have been looking more at the plans and I think a lot cyclists will not be happy about the section near Woodlands Park train station. Adjacent to the station, the bicycle path stops (there are "stop" lines on the plans), and for about 50…"

"They have similar bi-directional on-road paths in Sydney and I have found them pleasant enough when using them. I don't think they will be a problem with the low volume of car and bike traffic that route currently has."

"I assume you mean the junctions as they are at the moment, not the ones in the plan? And especially crossing the E-W roads which cross the train line (Delaine Ave, Angus Ave) ?"

Paul May replied to Peter B's discussion New bikeway work along Railway Terrace, Edwardstown + Ascot Park
"The separation looks like it will be a narrow raised concrete separator.  The path surface will largely be the existing road surface - similar to the construction method for the original Frome St Bikeway.  No-one is going to cross it by…"

Peter B replied to Peter B's discussion New bikeway work along Railway Terrace, Edwardstown + Ascot Park
"I am a little concerned at the proposal to make it a "bi-directional on-road bike path". Without decent separation, surely that sort of setup is dangerous? The plans appear to have a small concrete separator, but I'm not sure. So…"

"Regarding stopping at intersections: On very hot days I will usually get off the road to seek some shade on the footpath, while waiting at a red light. Granted that doesn't work if the intersection is not signalised."

"I decided to take the train yesterday. Well done to those who could do it, but I felt like a bit of caution was required, and chose the option which involved being in the heat for the least amount of time.  It was still over 45 when I would…"

Peter B replied to Chris Hill's discussion Crafers - Blackwood - Mitcham
"Yes, that is a nice alternative. However I would go down James Road (right turn off Sheoak Road), because I don't think the "James Road gives way to Old Belair Road" issue would be much of a problem in the middle of the day."

Peter B replied to Chris Hill's discussion Crafers - Blackwood - Mitcham
"Yes, I was going to say that is a better place to cross than Forest Ave."

Peter B replied to Chris Hill's discussion Crafers - Blackwood - Mitcham
"Out of interest, is that (Forest Ave) where you cross Minno Creek?"
Jan 13
Peter B replied to Chris Hill's discussion Crafers - Blackwood - Mitcham
"My apologies, I was looking at the east side of Minno Creek and Watahuna Ave. I didn't realise that the little road on the west side of Minno Creek (which is really a completely different road) was also called Forest Ave."
