"After the flooding of the newly opened section, planned work concerning storm water direction was quickly completed, so that issue should be solved. As for the winding around at Bolivar, it sucks that a direct route wasn't planned for and built…"

"There is the possibility of taking to the Main North Road verge northwards from the Little Para underpass up to the Bolivar Rd junction, should save one main road crossing. Other than that, no, the builders didn't think that cyclists deserve a…"

"Got around to trying the new paths today, nothing was flooded at the moment (don't quote this after the weekend) and overall it seems fairly decent. There's no way around having to double-cross at the Wakefield/Bolivar intersection that I…"

"Sadly I didn't take pictures, was 'in the groove' and wanted to keep up the pace for a bit. Anyway, I can't see there being anyone on the bike path design team that is competent with drainage, seeing how long the Port Wakefield…"

"I have heard that there is a Ministerial for the Minister's Department to reply to on the Northern Connector bike path with these problems.  Another rider has some photos and will write in as well.  It would be timely to have a third…"

"That's a big shame! From what I have seen on these forums though, it's not entirely unexpected. One can only hope that the water issues on the new parts of the track are merely teething problems on a piece of new infrastructure..."

"Having read that some of the Northern Connector bike path was open for business.... I thought I'd check it out today. Imagine my cynical thoughts when I saw that two sections of the brand new track were under water after what would have to be a…"

"Thanks for letting us know how your ride went Daniel.  That picture would have been a good one for Where In The World Is My Bike!! Coventry Rd has plenty of room for wide sealed shoulders was what I kept thinking riding along. …"

"Neat trick, using that underpass. It's not too bad using the surface path, just tedious waiting for the lights to cross both roads. Anyway, good to see you did it."

"It looks like they've saved some money by using the existing Little Para Trail between Globe Derby Park and Bolivar, going under Port Wakefield Rd. I noticed the new path works around Bolivar Rd the last time and wondered how they fitted in.…"

"Thank you for your replies and suggestions everyone.  Well, today was a fine day so with the wind at my back I made the ride to Gawler! I ended up following BJ's route and it went well, for the most part. It was such a beautiful ride and I…"

Daniel replied to Equal2lance's discussion MTBikeway rebuild?
"Yes, last time I rode by I saw some crews spot-fixing the bumpy sections. The parts they fixed certainly seemed a lot smoother! I wonder what happened to the work they were going to do to address pedestrian-cyclist conflict by the bus stop near…"

"Good to here that its mostly complete. I'm looking forward to being able to cycle all the way to Gawler on a sealed path. The DPTI Northern Connector Map shows the connector shared path in purple - the bit I'm unclear about is the bit near…"

"I rode that bit today from Mile End. it served to remind me why I don't much like riding on busy roads. Following the Adelaide/ Gawler railway route from the city, I crossed the railway tracks and went through the tunnel…"

"Well that is exciting! Would that be what is referred to as the Gawler Greenway? Upon doing some research, it appears that the first park (to the Port River Expressway) is technically the Greenway. Hm. Anyway I plan to do the ride tomorrow, so it…"

"When you use Gallipoli Drive to Grand Junction Road, just cross at the lights onto Rosberg Rd, right onto Johansson Rd then either left or right at Cormack Rd lights to pick up the trail of your choice. New trails in the area should be well sign…"
