Treasure trove…of street pavers

October 4, 2016

We all know, of course, (don’t we) that it is an urban myth?

That when Unley Council made the momentous decision to turn King William Road into a red-paver rumble strip the contract documents suffered a slight hiccup.

“Slight” by way of being  a kind description of the small error of putting  the decimal point  in  the wrong spot. One number to the right. Which, according to urban legend, means that somewhere not too far away from the boundary of Unley lies a mountainous pile of pavers. Which explains the relentless push to pave all of Unley’s footpaths, which add up to a significant number of kilometers.

Site of the hidden hoard, please, to “Grumpy”. Your identity will remain  a secret.

    Since Many people in Unley walk on the road, putting themselves at risk of injury from cars, its time to question all this paving. Judy of Millswood

    If so many people are walking (and riding) on the roads and the risk of being hit is so high there are some significant inadequacies at play here. 1: the facilities for these transport modes are inadequately distributed, 2: the quality of these facilities is not sufficient, 3: there are too many motor vehicles on the road, 4: the vehicle speeds are too high and/or 5: driver skills are inadequate, they should get over their feeling of entitlement or they need to stop driving. Roads were originally made as shared spaces, not a place for motor vehicle drivers to bully everyone else off them.
