Bunda Street truly rectified

By johnboy 7 March 2011 25

Bunda Street stripped bare

We did warn that Bunda Street in Civic was going to well and truly get resurfaced.

Well as you can see they’ve taken it back to the dirt.

Which road will be the replacement target of industrial grade whinging?

What’s Your opinion?

Case in point for why the Childers Street “shared zone” is a joke. You don’t need pedestrian crossings in a shared zone, because pedestrians have right of way!

Pedestrian crossing or not, the speed limit needs to be enforced. No way am i going to claim my “right of way” as a pedestrian when walking towards an car going 6 times the speed limit.

what he said, i’ve seen people do at least 60 down the “shared zone”. Ive seen people speed up even more to try and “beat me” to the pedestrian crossing so they dont have to stop.

Architecturally, it’s just a road: the road is separated from the surrounding footpaths by on-street parking, planters and bicycle racks, which encourages separate car and pedestrian corridors. There’s no need for any sharing, just crossing.

Another Canberra road “wrecktified”.

It’s okay, they’re not going to leave it like that.

Oh good, so it will be fixed like the Erindale Drive/Ashley Drive roundabout – 3 weeks and no work done except to scrape the road enough to wreck tyres – yes fix my street contacted or Marcus Clarke St/Hobart Place dug up and nothing for two weeks, just fencing erected to block motorcycle parking or the GDE – we’ll just leave that one alone or Drakeford Drive, relaid but you don’t need lines for lanes, make your own.

But agree to the shared zone concept for Bunda, Childers Street has shown it can work well.

Horse Park Drive and Majura Road – what were they thinking with the recent patching and pot hole filling on Horse Park – it’s like driving on Braille.
And the full Majura Resurface in late 2008 (where the new surface was laid directly over the old crap one, pot holes and all, without any grading), was woeful.

This appears to be “the Canberra way”…
