Cycling in Sydney Australia
Great news today - the ramp for the northern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is going to be built next year: https://bicyclensw.org.au/shb-ramp/
Yes, it is long overdue and it isn't a link all the way up to Falcon St and on to the path along the highway, but it is a positive news story never the less.
Project overview here: https://vimeo.com/spatialau/review/193102987/edee10d505
Skip to 50 seconds for news on elveators for the pedestrian side and description of improved access on both north and south approaches.
With Wilson St, Lilyfield Rd, the SHB, infrastructure is again starting to be spread out to increase CBD access. Looks like a bit of a shift in priorities from Transport and Roads.
Just make sure your bike has a biketollways E-Way tag fitted or you will have to add in a few more kays and go via the Gladys Berejiklian Bridge (aka the renamed Gladesville Bridge)
Which wasn't taken on the road side of the tracks as they put the fence on top of the existing fence but somehow that didn't happen on the cycling side
When the trains had doors that could stay open, it really was stop and wait for the train to pass or try and dodge the flying glass beer bottle and the maze of shards. With auto doored AC trains and the full time Howards security people, do they still need the cage?
Yeah, I've been narrowly missed by the by products of a bottle and it's contents thrown from a ute which hit that cage.
It's to prevent terrorists reaching the roadway. Apparently terrorists don't drive motor vehicles
They must have burned through the $1,500,000 allocated for the project in feasibility studies and brunches. Perhaps after the next round of funding they'll get enough to have their cake and eat it too.
Are they really going to do it? How many years do you need to come up with a plan?
