Bayside Council Have Your Say - Wolli Creek one way circuit including cycleway project -
Feedback will take less than 30 seconds.
It's the last day to provide feedback.
BIKEast support Option 2 (includes an extra length of cycleway).
If you have time, please also mention that you support a slower speed zone - eg. 40km/hr will benefit this increasingly heavy pedestrian area.
Only 30 mins to go, and too much to take in. Don’t know the area well enough to say where cyclists want to go, though I think Guess St underpass is pretty crucial if a Wollli Ck on road route ever gets built. Also connects from Wollongong Rd.
Benny makes good points, maybe better to have shared traffic and low speeds, otherwise too many conflict points where you have to merge into traffic from a bike lane or bidi, eg in Guess St after the underpass, which is OK now anyway with 4 m lanes. Also don’t like 1.2 m bike lanes and 2.4 m bidis as you all know.
I'm familiar with the area and option 2 seemed a good result considering the space constraints. No doubt some refinements could of been made.
Ironically its a great feeder into the airport cycleway which we are at risk of loosing
Like Lilyfield Rd it will probably be residents opposed or not opposed to the one way system that will determine the outcome.
The full traffic report is worth a read, it really pushes for improved pedestrian and cycle facilities, pointing out the need to prioritise them over cars if more and more apartments are built in the precinct. Cars still seem to have priority, particularly at intersections and turning or merging points, like the right turn from Arncliffe into Guess Sts.
