Cycling in Sydney Australia
One for the Planners (and Coders?).
After many appeals ;-p Planning NSW has just released an online Development Application (DA) tracker (similar to the City of Sydney's) which can alert for development opportunities for cycling (eg, cycleways, paths, through-site access, barriers to cycling, bike parking 'etc).
In light of the fact that most cycling infrastructure is lost won at the local scale, we're looking to create an e-platform to identify and largely automate responding to these opportunities.
We're keen to hear from planners, coders and in particular User Experience (UX)/Design experts with a view to creating that e-platform.
Email us at email@example.com or respond the relevant post on our facebook wall.
Why not host a cycle-hack day?
You post a date and time, give a topic or a goal, and supply the WiFi and cola. It's amazing what can be build in a day (eg. T-10, from a NASA hack-day).
Maybe SydneyCyclist.com and BikeSydney could team up and crowd-source a solution?
