  2. I like it,they look great about time too. If they want it to be safe for Cyclists to travel in Comfort without constantly looking over their Shoulder then they have to take more space away from the Cars.

  3. This is very good news. We have only two "Copenhagen" lanes in Adelaide so far (Sturt Street and Frome Road). Motorists have already begun to complain about the Sturt Street lane but I am hoping it will be ignored and more will be built.
