"Yep, it's in Underdale. Saw someone using it this morning so it seems to be functional."

Mark S replied to Savvas's discussion Public bike maintenance facilities on Linear Path?
"The only one on linear path I'm aware of is one of the Charles Sturt council bike stations located in Tedder Reserve, Flinders Park. I see people using it quite a bit, so it seems to be well maintained. I've not seen one on linear path on…"

"Amazingly, the bollard has already been removed! I expect the dismount sign is there because it's still a potentially dangerous underpass - the path narrows significantly under the road bridge where the new concrete & steel pathway meets…"

"Glad to see the underpass finally open again. No more reversing car slalom through the Brickworks car park. It's a real shame that the old wooden path on the eastern side of the bridge has not been upgraded (I understand that Charles Sturt is…"

"I don't know if councils charge rent when builders occupy public space, but they should - it seems like it would be an easy & not unpopular way to help discourage 'unforeseen delays'. Plus the path past Nazareth was in pristine…"

"It’s not just disappointing but nonsensical. It’s a simple matter of playing percentages – if I commute in peak hour on a busy road corridor, about 100-200 cars will drive or turn near me per day. If we somehow improved driving…"

Mark S replied to Pete Bolt's discussion Rail Crossings - TRJ still closed
"Last update I saw, linear path was supposed to be reopened in October. However the bridge widening was supposed to only take 4 months and ended up finishing about 18 months behind schedule, so I'd take that date with a very large grain of salt!"

Mark S replied to heather's discussion Charles Sturt Council seeks feedback
"Done! I also noticed that Charles Sturt has a community survey/review open for their sections of the Bikedirect Network (including Linear Path, Coast Path & OH Greenway). If the Coast Path is ever going to get completed through Tennyson, then…"

"Thanks for the update ... *sigh* I guess that means users of linear path will have to put up with that dreadful narrow & slippery section of wooden boards past the cemetery for a few more years. The council is probably hoping it can hold out…"

Mark S replied to Savvas's discussion Notice: Linear Park Closure....
"Yeah, there's a bridge there & another bridge a bit further west. The river bank is quite steep around there, so the degree of difficulty for bush bashing is fairly high :) One other detour option would be to use Beatty St & Hartley…"

Mark S replied to Savvas's discussion Notice: Linear Park Closure....
"This seems completely unnecessary. All the work involving heavy equipment (excavation, foundations, frames) has already been done over the last 2 months, and no path closure was required. It feels like the builder has decided it would be a tiny bit…"
