This in from Sir Pompously:
Snapped this image today of a new safe crossing point in Gungahlin. As usual, the fantastic planning of Gungahlin comes out to shine. Instead of removing the tree, they have left it there, meaning there is no path to kurb connection, and if you wanted to use the crossing point you need to walk through foliage and move it out of the way so you can see if any cars are coming. Would hate to be blind aswell, using those tactiles would be a P in the A when you get smacked in the face by branches when you reach this side of the road.
Have to say, most of Gungahlin is similar with no curb to footpath connections, no foot path at all, no bus stop to foot path connection, no bus stop pads, half built bus stop pads (Only for the seat, but to get to the seat you need to walk over dirt, and then to get to the bus you need to do the same). This takes it up a notch by not removing an obstruction.
