Now I know what the new posts are for. Cycle route signs being added for North Parkland through to and across Regency Road. Is this all we get for the Braund Boulevard planned to roll out a year ago.…Continue

"I noticed last Monday - at least they had padded the scaffolding poles and added reflective tape. Yes they could have treated this main cycle way with more thought to keep it open."

"Daniel, spot on. In 2000 the rat-runners successfully lobbied Prospect Council to give lower priority to the Braund Rd resident vote. Perhaps easy when the council included elected members who did not live on Braund Rd but…"

"It's a real shame, because I am not surprised that residents wouldn't mind road closures. It would be non-residents, i.e. people using Brand as a rat-run, that would kick up the most fuss I would imagine. Thank you for championing the…"

"Daniel, agree. I think the only aspect that might slow vehicles at these 'raised intersections' is the colour change, red thermo thermoplastic cf with grey asphalt. Red bricks with noisy rumble could be more effective. As…"

"As a further comment, I’ve now had the chance to ride over the new raised intersections installed last month. Unfortunately, the term ‘raised’ is being generous. The height change and slope are of the shallowness that I’m…"

"So I've had the occasion to ride down the Braund bike boulevard a few times in the last month. First of all, I have to say it is a huge improvement over what was there. Largely this is due to the new crossing of Fitzroy Tce, which really drew…"

To decrease bike theft at the uni, install enough secure bike storage. A link to buy and/or install bike cages and sheds. http://www.bikestorage.com.au

David, today learnt that plain clothes police patrolling bikes cos many thefts. Frequent complaints from cyclists in your locale who cannot get place in secure bike cage. Even complaints that the newer racks hard to use (and do not meet Austroads or Australian Standards for secure locking).
The one-off cage designs have been too expensive for the uni. A while back I gave you info from Bicycle Network Victoria on what might be flat-pack cages. Now is the time for you to follow this up with potential success. A roof would satisfy some who like to keep their bike out of the rain and sun.
Marc who told me the news said that some areas where if locking gates with swipe cards installed, this would make bikes more secure. Another approach that is used by ACC for its staff at 25 Pirie. Includes a roof supported by 4 poles. Reminiscent of bus shelters -- not surprising because made by Adshell. Marc said that roof would be too expensive for this or cage, so be prepared to back down on roof request.

Yesterday I encouraged someone to Ride2Work and the free breakfast in Victoria Square. The tempter for the first 1,000 is a coffee voucher to use immediately. There will be some stalls there for paying customers of coffee, smoothies mixed on a bicycle, and the Veggie Velo cart pulled by a bike.
