East West Bikeway

Council decided we will not proceed with the proposed separated bike lane along Franklin and Flinders Street with a dogleg through Gawler Place.

We consulted extensively with the community and we listened to all the feedback that we received.

The general feedback we received was that bikeways are great for the city but stakeholders wanted council to consider impacts on things like schools, churchgoers and parking.

Ultimately Council decided this is not the right route.

As a capital city council we will continue to invest in cycling infrastructure and explore opportunities to grow our cycling network.
