These bollards with a sharp spear like shape are very dangerous IMO. I got some removed from the cyclepath at Malabar, next to Anzac Pde. They served no purpose anyway, since a car coul$ easily get round them. Also some of these style bollards, only wider, on bike path over Cooks River on Princes Highway. Just about decapitate a falling cyclist.

Thanks.

"City chief executive Mike Foley said the path was safe at night, as long as users rode to the conditions."

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we wouldn't tolerate poles in the middle of the road.


Yep - design the system so that it works if people don't ever make a mistake. Then, when a person (inevitably) makes a mistake and someone gets hurt, we blame them.

Alternatively, design the system so that mistakes don't cause harm - as best as we can.

they should have made those bollards visible such as by reflecting light at night.
