Commenting on the story: City councillors in mood for $1m mood lighting at North Adelaide

It is truly disappointing to read that even more money is to be spent on beautifying North Adelaide with mood lighting.

In the past couple of years North Adelaide has seen new footpaths and plantings everywhere.

In the meantime, the centre street of the city that leads visitors into the heart of Victoria Square remains a desert.

From East Terrace to Gawler Place, the island on Wakefield Street is a hard brown stretch of dead grass for nine months of the year.  

Where are the plants? Where is the mood lighting?  Last I heard it was a couple of years away. Why? Cathy Jones

Commenting on the story: City council planners back Flinders-Franklin bikeway route

The Motorcycle Riders’ Association of South Australia would like to voice our opposition to the proposed Flinders-Franklin bikeway route.

The loss of 336 car parking spaces and 63 motorcycle bays will inconvenience commuters and visitors to the city.

This loss of amenity far outweighs the perceived increase in safety and convenience for cyclists.

We support making cycling safer and more appealing but not at the loss or trade of other facilities.

The MRASA commends the Adelaide City Council in the creation and retention of motorcycle parking in the Adelaide CBD, on both street and footpath parking.

The abolition of 63 motorcycle parking bays is a backwards step, especially when alternatives exist exhibiting less detriment to motorists, motorcyclists and retailers. – Graeme Rawlins, MRASA president

Commenting on the story: New Centrelink income rules now law after illegal robo-debt scandal

After the great IT successes this government has given us, like the Census, My Health Record and robodebt, now new online income reporting has become law.

What could possibly go wrong, with the ATO involved as well?

Isn’t that how the government got into the robodebt shambles?

If you need to report by phone (can you still do that?) you’ll talk to a clueless Serco staffer. More happy days! – Suzanne Cass

I enjoy  Spiro Karanikos-Mimis’ soccer articles.

However Opseth is Norwegian, not Danish. (I’m of Norwegian descent so my conflict is declared). – Bernie Stefan-Rasmus
