Consultation opens on the East-West Bikeway (closing Feb 19)
For the first time in over 3 years, the public is being given the opportunity to comment on an east-west bikeway design.
The proposed route is shown below and includes a fully separated kerbside bikeway with a proposed 2.5m width (excluding pinch points).
Our aim is to encourage as many positive responses as is possible. Please take a few minutes to fill in the online form today (the form is at the bottom of the page). Consultation results will decide if this project is delivered or abandoned.

Written Submissions All written submissions must be received by 5.00pm on the date advertised and should be addressed to: Community Consultation East-West Bikeway GPO Box 2252, Adelaide SA 5001
Our key thoughts:
1. The proposed design and route will provide a safe low-stress cycle route for people to access the city from the east and from the west.
2. While a route directly along Flinders is preferred, we deem it to be an almost impossible mission to achieve and therefore support the alternative route proposed.
3. The centre of the road option is untested, unsafe, and unfeasible (a distraction aiming to derail the project by opposing councilors not recommended by staff).
4. Delivery of the proposed street design will increase the number of people cycling to the city for the many benefits it will bring. Delivery should not be delayed any longer.
SPREAD THE WORD AND SPEAK UP - 11% of cycling accidents occur in the City of Adelaide. Riders deserve a safe option!
