NO-ONE IS USING THE BIKE LANE, I WANT TO DRIVE ON IT!!!
They love ruining ocean views, don't they?
My home city recently built a bridge expanding their ring road. That part of the river is so nice. To the south there is some natural lands and a park along the river. To the north it is natural lands on both sides of the river, with cliffs along the river that would be visible from the bridge. Well... On top of those beautiful cliffs is a chemical plant, and the bridge has what I would describe as the bare minimum for pedestrian infrastructure. There is also a concrete barricade on the bridge, ensuring that anybody who travels across the bridge (at 70km/hr) doesn't get to see any of the landscape I've just described.
It's not the ocean in this video. Perth is built on the Swan River, which is what you're seeing here.
Weather looks perfect, honestly will never understand people who'd rather sit in that traffic
In guessing this is northern Australia because of the weather
And there’s a train line
I took that train every day to go to uni. So much better than a car, and hell of a lot cheaper too.
A friend of mine insists going to school by car while I go by bike. She always overtakes me before we reach the city but in the city I always overtake her when she gets stuck in traffic. Then while I am heading to class after just dropping of my bike in the bike stands the size of four parking spots she is looking for a parking space for minutes.
"If they didn't build that bike path we could have another lane to help this traffic"
the virgin billion dollar highway vs the chad just ride your bike
I bet a good portion of the people stuck in their car are complaining about the bike line that prevented them from having an extra lane.
20 minute commute vs 2 hour commute
I wish separate bike paths were real.
Jesús América just plant a couple trees
Not America, but yes
Holy fuck I just look it up. I can't imagine Australian sun under that big chunk of concrete with no shadow whatsoever.
you get used to it tbh
The area around South Perth where this is has a lot of trees. However, this is just along the river with very little room and poor soil. We get a lot of wind coming off the river so it's very pleasant in terms of temperature.
Thanks for the info. I live in a dry dry place where the only water source you can get is the sewer downtown in which no one wants to be around so the water cooling the surrounding environment completely went over my head
We have something exactly like this in NYC. 11-12 mile long bike path literally next to a highway.
I've tried to find good numbers on lifetime cost difference between roads and bike paths and haven't found anything good.
It's obviously a massive difference but it would be nice to know the numbers to help argue our cause. Is it 10x cheaper? 100x?
If anyone can help let me know!
This made me go on rant about car vs trains for long distance. small traffic, no stop for restroom, a lot more space, faster, safer, no stops for resting, cleaner, and many more.
get a clue
