Cycling in Sydney Australia
Does anyone know how to sort out getting road cleaning & repairs done?
My SnapSolve app sent my messages to Blacktown council but they say they are not responsible for Richmond Road.
I called the RMS - they put me straight through to somebody's answer machine but I've had no reply from him.
Not feeling too encouraged to ride the bike lane....
I also go the name of the local guy responsible for organising the work & emailed him the pics.
BTW - the truck was a lucky snap. Timing the iPhone to take action shots is hard.
You could download SnapSendSolve.com to your iphone or android (if you have one).
"My SnapSolve app sent my messages to Blacktown council but they say they are not responsible for Richmond Road."
BTW - nobody bothered replying.... Oh no, they just did nothing. I had to call to find out that that road was not their responsibility.
Send this to Barry and his team too. Invite them for a ride.
Yeah - I wonder if this is counted in their "Cycling Infrastructure" statistics.
"Not feeling to encouraged to ride the cyclepath" - what cyclepath? Is that supposed to be a path? I take it you wouldn't be using a road bike on that one..
Sorry, didn't mean to pick up the labelling of it. I'm just amazed that it could be considered a bike facility. It's completely unusable for all except hardened cyclists with the right kind of bike, and only then as a last resort!
Perhaps I should get the details of my nephew's case. Permanently disabled due to a crash directly related & caused by condition of the road - fell from his bicycle into traffic.
7 figure payout because he needs carers full time. Send the RMA the details & ask that they consider repair lest another case occur resulting in a large litigation
