Cycling in Sydney Australia
Some questions for anyone who might know:
In December last year, Duncan Gay announced $35 million for a cycleway ramp onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge, $20m for the north, and $15m for the south.
Since then there doesn't seem to be any signs of progress. Is anyone aware of any further work, studies, bulldozers moving on the ground to turn this fuzzy line on a map into concrete?
In July last year, Andrew Constance the Transport Minister announced a great cycleway, the Inner West Greenway - 6.5km from Cooks River to Iron Cove

Likewise, does anyone know of them actually putting some concrete down to make this a reality?
A bonus would be "possible future link to Hawthorne Canal through the railway cutting under Balmain Rd and Norton St" but I suppose that's anyone's guess.
Someone may be able to help if they can get some info, which seems hard to come by!
I did see some surveyors working at the Longport St underpass site a few weeks back, this would substantiate being at the detailed design phase.
Thanks for the contact name Bob.
Thanks also Paul. The RMS is pretty hard to get info out of, until things start happening.
I sent the RMS a question about when the plans for the SHB ramp will be released to the public for review.
They replied (25th July) :
Thank you for taking the time to contact us.
We are in the process of finalising all the documentation in relation to the Northern Cycle Ramp and as such will be seeking feedback from the community in the coming months (closer to the end of September/beginning of October).
will ask them again at start of Oct
Pretty bad cutting disabled people out. I wonder if wheelchair users will be allowed to use the bike side.
A design workshop for the bike ramp was held by RMS on 23rd of June. Final design will be forwarded for public consultation.
