You and G-boaf need to get out more. Given enough time you'll find everything from smooth, broad asphalt to goat track labelled everything under the sun (or road regulations, in this case).
There is another subtlety which causes inter-departmental angst this side the rabbit proof fence: many "PSPs", shared paths and footpaths go off the road reserve (and therefore out of the reach of the traffic code) and onto either council land (and then under council rules) or Some Other Department (rail, ports, yadda, yadda). If you're really lucky, the PSP is on the boundary and neither mob will take responsibility.
Or even better still onto "private" property where getting stuff fixed can take half a decade.
Or even a quarter of a century, just to build a relatively short link between 2 trails: https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/our-c ... in-bridge/
But then this is in Melbourne, where a rail link between Melbourne and the airport has been discussed for donkey's years, but no action yet.
