BISA congratulates the Marshall Liberal team on their successful result at the recent South Australian elections. 

We look forward to working closely with the new Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Knoll.

Stephen's portfolio includes transport and infrastructure, housing and urban development, City of Adelaide and local government.

Stephen has been in parliament since 2014 and became shadow police minister in January last year.

He was general manager of his family's smallgoods business, Barossa Fine Foods, before he became a Member of Parliament.

Outer Harbour Greenway review

Donna Ferretti and Associates, Hemisphere Design and Jennifer Bonham have been engaged by the City of Charles Sturt to prepare a review of the Outer Harbor Greenway. This review focused on the section within the City of Charles Sturt and aims to:
1. Assess the safety and function of the Greenway in order to encourage and enable greater use by cyclists, pedestrians and other active travellers.
2. Consult with Council, local residents, businesses and other stakeholders to determine appropriate treatments to the Greenway to improve its functionality and help generate a sense of place and ownership
3. Recommend improvements that will enhance safety, connectivity and attractiveness as a space for active travel and social interaction.
4. Propose various treatments to the Greenway that would encourage and enable less confident cyclists to use it more frequently.
5. Recognise the potential for a future, inclusive placemaking process to shape the public realm through the detailed design and delivery of potential ‘active travel’ treatments
This report follows on from the Discovery Report and uses the findings of that report together with the results of the consultation process (see Section 3) to present and recommend a range of treatments to foster active travel. The stakeholder input  makes for good reading.
The review can be found at http://www.charlessturt.sa.gov.au/webdata/resources/minutesAgendas/Item%206.147%20-%20Outer%20Harbour%20Greenway%20Audit%20-%20Appendix%20A.pdf

Electric Vehicle Day

The Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA)  has been operating for over 40 years and advocates for electric mobility. This includes cars, buses, trains, trams, boats, planes and bicycles. They consider that moving to electric mobility will not only be cheaper for people in the long run, reduce pollution leading to a drop in respiratory  diseases etc  and if renewable power is used, reduce our overall carbon footprint.
 
AEVA see electric bikes as a way of getting people out of cars etc and in to cycling, and gives people another cycling option.
 
The uptake of electric vehicles in Australia has been fairly slow compared to other places around the world. There is a number of barriers that seems to stop people moving to EV. To help over come this slow adoption rate, AEVA is involved in a large project that is aimed at breaking down those barriers, and shift people over to purchasing an EV.  The program is called Charge Together, and has received funds from the Federal Government through an AREAN grant. Here is a link to their web page. http://www.chargetogether.com/southaustralia/
 
AEVA’s will be hosting a Green Drive Day at the Joinery on the 8th of April. There will be a number  of vehicles on display, including people being able to take EVs for test drives.
 
MiCycles, run by Mic Chapman,  will be displaying electric bikes. BISA is assisting with this display which gives people the opportunity to test ride the bikes.

Hope to see you there.
