Saw your comment about road debris. Most bicycle lanes are on arterial roads (DPTI) or in the City (ACC). Contact either:
-- Traffic Hazards, Transport, by email DPTI.EnquiriesAdministrator@sa.gov.au but if an urgent hazard like broken glass, phone 1800 018 313 (24-hr)
-- ACC, city@adelaidecitycouncil.com
