Safe haven popular with cyclists
Thursday, 5 March 2015
A new median on Greenhill Road is very popular with cyclists who use it to cross the busy street on the way to work.
Having only recently opened, the median near Porter Street has already been adopted by the growing number of people choosing two wheels to get around the city.
It links the Rugby Street / Porter Street bicycle route through the City of Unley with the Frome St Bikeway in the City of Adelaide.
An Unley resident recently emailed to thank DPTI for "the efficient manner in which the changes were made. The alterations to the section between Unley Road and George Street are a terrific improvement to safety, access and amenity for both local residents, local businesses and transiting pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles." Another median user, who also happens to be a department employee, said, "Without cars speeding and turning from multiple directions, and a biking black spot fixed, I feel my trip to work is much safer. And I can tell you the prams and dog walkers are safer too."
The median was installed as part of stages 1-3 of the Greenhill Road Median Safety Improvements, which has involved $1.4 million in works to improve safety for all road users, pedestrians and cyclists on Greenhill Road between Goodwood Road and George Street / Hutt Road. Construction is scheduled for completion by May 2015 (weather permitting).
Stage 4 of the improvements affecting the stretch of road between Glen Osmond Road and George Street / Hutt Road is now open for comments from the public. View the plans and have your say by visiting www.dpti.sa.gov.au/infrastructure/content/greenhill_road_median_safety_project.
