Has Frome Street bikeway been a “massive failure”? NO

Frome Street bikeway has been a political disaster for the Adelaide City Council – but what does the evidence say about the bikeway itself?
Last week, city councillors declared the $1.6 million Frome Street bikeway had been a “massive failure” and a waste of ratepayers’ money, removing any lingering doubt about the council’s intention to demolish it
. . .
But before jackhammer meets cement, and despite the politics, it must be acknowledged that the bulk of available empirical evidence and expert opinion shows Frome Street bikeway to have been an overwhelmingly successful piece of public infrastructure.
This is clear primarily because an independent expert report, commissioned by the council the day before the official opening of the bikeway [during Velo-city Global Adelaide 2014], made public in 2015, demonstrated myriad merits of the bikeway using empirical data, and comprehensively answered the many of the claims against the bikeway that persist today.

They seem to be having a "bicycle" problem in Adelaide / South Australia? What are those Adelaide Cyclists up to?
We might have to pass the hat around for Sydney Cyclist?
Pity about Adelaide Cyclists then, seems to be a lot more active than MelbourneCyclists (& here at times)
"We might have to pass the hat around for Sydney Cyclist?"
Nope, but Ning is going to die soon.
I'm putting new plans into action... will tell more soon :)
it's not a bad option Bob.
I'm working on a couple of things which may interest you too. I'll keep in touch.
Suggestions to Adelaide BUG included Facebook plus Wordpress. Would appreciate feedback in this discussion or by private msg.
I was having lots of trouble just trying to get onto SC for over a week not long ago. I tried everything that I knew to fix it and even asked my ISP to reset my line. About a day or two after they had reset my line, things reverted to normal. I've had this happen a few times in the last year or so. I'm not sure where the problem lay, but could I suggest that we get some other contact details for you so that when this sort of thing happens it may be possible to sort out the problem sooner.
It occurred with both of my ISP's - Exetel NBN landline and Telstra wireless.
"The problem only applied to Ning"
I only had problems with SC, no other websites had any issues.
I know I'm side tracking but is there any thoughts about merging with bike Marrickville, now its under the same council?
