PortBUG: Closure of the Sema4 Bike Paths – PortBUG Responds!


Readers will recall a recent petition to Council from the Semaphore Mainstreet Association (on behalf of 37 traders) to permanently close the Semaphore Road Bike Paths. The PortBUG has now provided Council with a detailed response which you can read here.

These pathways are more-or-less unique in Australia & were installed as part of the complete redevelopment of Semaphore Road-East around a decade ago. They complement widened ‘boulevard’ footpaths as well as a narrowed & speed-limited roadway which was provided with both on-road bike-lanes & many additional angled parking spaces.

We anticipate attending an informal meeting shortly to discuss the SMA’s request with The Mayor & key Council Staff. It seems likely that Council staff will present a report to Elected Members sometime in August or September.

UPDATE: THE BUG NOW UNDERSTANDS THAT THE COUNCIL REPORT (ALONG WITH PORTBUG’S SUBMISSION) WILL BE CONSIDERED BY COUNCILLORS AT THE SEPT. 11TH MEETING!

We’ll keep you posted!
