The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure will not accept any responsibility for any personal injury or damage to property arising from using these maps. Every care has been taken in the preparation of these maps, however no responsibility is accepted for any errors or omissions.
14 maps are available covering the Adelaide metropolitan area from Gawler in the north to Willunga in the south and from the coast to the hills. The series now includes a CBD bike map
(PDF 4.8MB). This web-based series has been designed so users can print each map on a standard A3 or A4 printer, or save on paper and zoom in on your screen. Better aerial photography has improved the portrayal of the Bikedirect
network, in particular off-road path locations.
To view and print these maps, your computer will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free from www.adobe.com
Some versions of Acrobat Reader will permit some layers of the maps to be turned off, so you can remove information that you don't need. For example – try turning off the seabuff and image layers, if you wanted to print the network maps and save on ink.
To serve you better, we welcome your feedback on what you like about the maps or how they could be improved. Please e-mail us your comments.
Please report any damage or hazard on the road network.
