Bicycle and pedestrian plan review for Unley.

November 2, 2015

Hot on the (w)heels, coincidentally following the public hoo-haa of the new State law allowing cyclists to (legally) invade Adelaide’s footpaths, comes news that the City of Unley  is undertaking a review of it’s ten-year-old Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

The Department of Transport and Industry has provided funding for the exercise,  which will investigate the number of changes to State Government and Council strategies since 2006. Along with this, as per the Councils endorsed motion, the study will undertake a safety review of Council’s bike corridors.

UBUG, the Unley Bicycle User Group, has been surveyed for members’ view on the plan, and the general public’s opinions will be sought early next year.

Hopefully the whole process will resolve the issues and address the  many safety concerns  expressed by followers of the “Grumpy” website over the past few days.

    That’s a good move. As long as UCC and the councillors get behind the recommendations of UBUG then you should see some good outcomes that mean that people don’t have to consider riding on the footpath.

    BTW, the answers to rego etc can be found in the various Australian studies into each popularist ideom. Take comfort in the fact that all of the recommendations for each subject have already been implemented (i.e. none, because they’re all counter productive and impossible to implement). You’ll find all of that light reading in the various Govt archives, in Aust and globally.
