As a regular cyclist through Civic (although for those keeping score at home let it be noted that I do once again own a car) I do wonder from time to time why we need quite so many poles getting in the way.
The corner of Northbourne and Alinga is probably the worst for a busy intersection trying to deal with large numbers of pedestrians, cyclists and cars. Yet amidst all this are six poles, a park bench, and a fire hydrant. One of the poles appears to serve no purpose at all!
Is it too much to ask for just a bit of consolidation in our urban infrastructure?
