PortBUG Alert, March 29th, 2017.

New Signs on the Coast Park Bikeway at Semaphore Park (pics by Dave Case)

1. Innovation on the Coastal Way: The PortBUG’s eagle-eyed camera patrol recently encountered these new signs on the Coast Park Bikeway at Semaphore Park (Charles Sturt Council area).

Cyclist – ring your bell!

Pathway Users – keep left!

The BUG has previously suggested to the Port Council that similar behavioural guidance be provided on the Coast Park Bikeway between Semaphore and Outer Harbour. Perhaps this initiative by Charles Sturt Council is an example worth emulating!

South Road Bikeway Overpass (marked #2 above).

2. Torrens-to-Torrens Project Update: In a brief update email today the T2T Project has announced that (amongst other things): “The Outer Harbour rail overpass will be fully completed in mid 2017, including the shared use pathway that will be attached to the northern side of the rail overpass, connecting pedestrians and cyclists with the Outer Harbor Greenway.”  Pathway highlighted in brown above, link to the full update here. 

Edit: We have received a comment from Brian suggesting that the ‘official’ cycling detour around the Torrens Junction Project may be a bit unclear. The nominated cycling detour route can be seen here. The nominated pedestrian detour can be found here. It’s also worth reading the latest Project Newsletter here. We’d welcome further feedback from those using these detours over the coming months. Ed.

    Our greenway bridge over South Rd this year (not 2018). Yeah

    A little exploration today – with the rail – sinking prep (for rail and bikeway under Park Tce), the greenway diversion signs around Bowden today are pretty clear but seemed unclear on how to access Bowden station, north or south platforms, or the alternate greenway route from the station.

      Hi Brian, Thanks for the useful comments. The PortBUG met with both the Torrens-2-Torrens and Torrens Junction Project Teams last week. We’ll prepare and provide a brief report on this combined project update shortly. From memory I believe that access to the Bowden rail precinct will be closed very soon (if not already). The ‘official’ pedestrian and cycling detours for those travelling towards the Adelaide CBD are somewhat circuitous, travelling around the Clipsal development site and emerging onto Park Trc at Eighth St. NE of the rail line. The Project has provided a detour map – I’ll edit the post and insert the appropriate links!

      A further reply to Brian’s note: As indicated in the Project Newsletter #5 (available at the Torrens Junction Project website), the current Bowden Station was closed permanently on 23rd March. The cafe in part of the old station building will remain open with pedestrian access. An entirely new Bowden Station will be built over the next year or so.
