Crash Barrier

Crash Barriers are causing headaches for some cyclists in the Adelaide Hills. Bike SA would like to hear your feedback. 

We are receiving increasing feedback relating to the location of crash barriers on some Adelaide Hills roads. Those who ride through this area will know there is already an overwhelming lack of sealed roadside, thereby reducing the amount of space available when cars and heavy vehicles wish to overtake cyclists. This lack of available space has the potential to be even further reduced when a crash barrier is installed.

We are interested to hear if there are locations on your ride where the installation of a crash barrier has further reduced the available road verge and therefore your ability to safely keep left for passing traffic. Photos would be welcome as well as mapped locations.

We will pass these onto the relevant authority to better inform future barrier placement and installation methods.
