The good news is that the government has at last agreed to fund the bikeway to align with the overpass at Goodwood. After announcing that this would happen quite a while ago and acquiring at least one this project is going to be funded. Last week I caught the train at Goodwood and was reminded one again that the underpass tunnel at the station is woefully inadequate, dangerous and unsafe.
While I rarely get comments about the good stuff that happens when things go wrong it is a different matter. As most people are aware the MTB is being upgraded between Goodwood Rd and KWR. This upgrade was long overdue and many were looking forward to using it. DIT were to upgrade the path and Council will replace and maintain the landscaping.
What could go wrong?
When preparing the surface the bull dozers were a little over zealous and additional trees need to be removed (DIT is not required by law to seek the same approvals for removals others would)
The path is taking a very long time to complete.
The finished work appears to not be flat or even.
Both Rogers and Almond street surface and signage have been damaged.
Access to the tram stop at Wayville has been difficult and somewhat muddy.
