[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

What could change and get more people riding bikes in general? An actual campaign that spruiks the health benefits for example. Except we have councillors who express specifically not doing that. Khera, aligned with the Team Adelaide majority voting bloc, also told the chamber it would be a “danger...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

There is an element of "use it and they will come". It is really hard to guess how many people are not riding along South Road because they don't feel safe. You actually think that the majority of people don't ride a bike because they don't feel safe? Sounds more like you're projecting yo...

#5481 Post by Simmos083 » Mon Nov 29, 2021 8:13 pm This motorway is needed to get our state moving with freight and cars which is critical for any city. It encourages cars to use it which is what we need. We do not need to waste our money on stupid bike lines for people who think for one minute the...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The 'dedicated bike lane' on Military road at West Beach literally starts in the middle of nowhere and ends in the middle of nowhere too - You have to use Military Rd to get to it, and you get dumped back on Military Rd at the end of it, so why not just stay on Military Rd? Military Rd at least wil...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Im all for segregated bike lanes. Most cyclists in lycra make their own road rules, so it would be a huge benefit. Let the problems they create be solely confined to a realm affecting them selves and other cyclists only. Why does every road project need to be a cycling route as well? There isn't th...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

You assume I don't ride a bike already. The bike lanes might not be safe in that they offer no protection, but that raises other questions such as should they be there to begin with which as I've stated here before I think cycling lanes should be segregated from motorist lanes. For that very reason...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Every time someone complains about bike lanes. They could make an entire road a bike lane and some people still wouldn't be happy. And we all know many of the cyclists still wouldn't be able to stay within the marked bike lane. In all honesty who gives a shit about how big the bike lanes are. There...

[PRO] Re: New Womens and Childrens Hospital

Does it really matter if its the 1st or 590th most expensive? As long as we get value for money. They're not debating the importance of the data, rather its accuracy, but yes at the end of the day its a value for money proposition. We all know hospitals are expensive, and why. The "cost" ...

[U/C] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

The freight line surely remains open most of the time. If so the Ovingham level crossing removal project would need occasional line closures to prevent freight trains passing through when they need to work around/over the line. I don't think the line is operated at capacity so it is possible there ...

So a military junta then. What are you? A communist?
The men in grey suits and the men in blue ties are not military, so it's not a military junta. They still control more than they should.

Re: The SA Politics Thread

The reason I am interested in the internal politics of the parties is that that is where the next member is effectively chosen. Spence (in this example) is a very safe Labor seat. It's highly unlikely to change to Liberal or SA-BEST no matter what candidates are put up.That means the ALP internals, ...

I'm also surprised Marshall has backed Chapman so strongly, but more because that's not what I'm used to hearing populist politicians do. I think she is right that she actually had no conflict, as her family property is opposite the forest , which will be logged anyway, not the port site or transpo...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

The cross bench seems to be enjoying creating havoc. Given that the Liberal minority government is still bigger than the Labor, I don't see Malinauskas getting to form a government. The crossbench is just as likely to decide that if there has to be a change of premier, it should be Frances Bedford! ...
