I am a year 12 student completing my HSC, for my major work I have designed a bike tunnel in Wynyard using the old tram tunnels, click link to view walk though. Let my know what you think as it will be extremely helpful for the evaluation section of my portfolio.Thank youhttps://youtu.be/61J6tESHwAcSee More
"The old tramway used to come out from the tunnel above Argyle St and then run across the bridge on th e east side, where southbound traffic lanes now run, and the footway, so not much use to cyclists as a bridge crossing route unless a connector…"
"The idea has merits - like most I prefer cycling on the surface, but the city bit of my commute is so stop/start and the pollution from vehicles is getting worse.

"I think it's a good idea, despite the naysayers. If nothing else, as a way of excluding use for cars.
Underground cycleways are quite popular in some places: Fernleigh Tunnel for instance. And there's no rain.
Maybe your project could…"
"Why have you have chosen that location for a cycle path?
Cycling infrastructure often gets located in the bits of space nobody else wants or needs, rather than the places where it would actually be useful."
"Hi Ben , hope your studies go well.
As a general design principle I would prefer that cars and other motor vehicles were put underground and people and bicycles remained in the sunlight. We only have a problem because motor vehicles are given far…"
HiI am a student currently completing my HSC, i am doing Design & Technology for my major work i plan to create a cycle path using old train tunnels. From South side of the harbour bridge to wynyard station, i plan to also include bike storage and end of trip faclilites.
