Blue bridge @ Forestville

Fantastic news about the SA State Government finally announcing the plan to build a pedestrian and cyclist overpass at Forestville, over the train line. This has been long overdue.
The entrances will from Norman Terrace and Railway Terrace North.
The path will be disability compliant and there will be stairs and lifts to the 2 station platforms below.
For cyclists travelling from 'Glenelg' to the city, this will cut 2.5 minutes off the commute time.
The price tag is $10m. This includes the cost of 2 lifts and compulsory acquisition of land.
At night there will be a nice subdued blue LED glow.

Here are more details from BikeSA


  1. The overpass will improve safety of both bike riders and walkers. The bridge will teplace the dark and delapidated underpass. The underpass does not meet disability codes and is extremely slippery when it rains. Please push for the eastern entrance to the underpass to be filled in and paved over. That small task would improve the pathway on that side to be significantly safer at the same time as the overpass.

  2. A good idea Ian.
    Maybe fill in both sides.

  3. This will make my cycling just so easy.
    A good outcome, Tks
