In Wayville SA on “Removal of up to 5...” at King William Road, Wayville, SA:

Mary Rumbold commented

This bike path can be upgraded without removing the trees. The State government & the Unley Council talk the talk but don't walk the walk! The state government's proposal for the greening of Adelaide & the Unley draft tree strategy appear to be such hypocritical stances when in practice both engage in actions which constantly reduce the tree canopy in Adelaide. Planting new trees is no substitute for removing old trees with their multiple bio-diversity values. It is scientifically illiterate to suggest there will be a better outcome.
The trees can be trimmed, vegetation pruned & a permeable safer surface laid. Why does the community need a bigger & faster bike track? Cyclists have to learn to share the space with pedestrians just as the state government has mandated we pedestrians have to share the footpaths with bicyclists.
