I am also unaware of the 10kph speed limit in this area. It is not signed posted and I couldn't find a reference to this speed either on the City of Stirling website. If you aren't provided with this information, how do you know there is a speed limit?The 'Stirling Gate' that will be installed at Trigg is underway and should be completed within a week. This does allow for an unimpeded 900mm gap and should be far less restrictive that any other form of gate or chicane and has been field tested. It is intended to provide compliance and enforcement of two elements: Firstly, the legal requirement for single file and secondly slowing down (on entry to an area of major conflict already covered by a 10kph speed limit in the Citys Local Laws).
I also looked at CycleWest bike maps and did notice that this area is not recorded on their maps as a dual-use path, though again, there is no sign posts in the area to indicate that this section is not a shared path. Below is a screen shot of the bike map, and included the current development occuring in this area. There are multiple circles drawn on the path, which potentially indicates that the 'gates' will intersect the path, forcing users to walk around them.
Below is also a shot of the solid curb indicated earlier which I leaned my bike up against to get this shot. The pedal is at the lowest position, and there was still a couple of inches above the pedal of the curb.curb is a mother of a solid curb
