"I asked for plans but these location maps are literally all they have. What they say about James northbound doesn't make sense, perhaps they meant James eastbound? The quality and amount of effort evidenced in this Feasability Report is woeful.…"

Lilyfield Road bike route - the latest Concept Plans

Two cycleway options are presented.The first is the original cycleway plan presented in 2017-2018 with its two one-way sections, Balmain Road to Norton Street and Gordon Street to Victoria Road, the bi-directional cycleway and accompanying loss of 136 parking spaces. It is admitted that this plan is unlikely to be popular.The second option is to leave Lilyfield Road unchanged except to move the bike lane from one side of Lilyfield Road to the opposite, up-hill, side in two places and also to…See More

"Saw you working there on Sunday, Bill!  The problem with that path as a route is the corner at Timbrell Drive, it’s restricted by the bridge railings and CWL concrete barrier. Danger of toppling over onto the CWL. We need to get RMS to…"

Overgrown path along the northern side of the CWL west of Timbrell Drive

This path extends the Bay Run cycleway (which starts at the Hawthorn Canal, passes the Haberfield Rowing Club and reaches Timbrell Dive and the mini-Anzac Bridge before turning north) from the western side of Timbrell Drive to the intersection of Waratah Street with the City West Link (CWL).While Westconnex was widening the CWL, the path was closed and became quite overgrown to the point where it narrowed to little more than a bike width. It is a route which I sometimes use and to prevent it…See More

Bob Moore replied to Bill's discussion Catherine Street at the City West Link traffic lights - new northbound bike phase now in operation.
"We spent some fun time counting the seconds each phase. Cyclists get about 4-5 seconds green to cross, but motorists who might cross your path are held for about 10 or 12 seconds, so no need to hurry. Buses and careless drivers sometimes occupy the…"

Catherine Street at the City West Link traffic lights - new northbound bike phase now in operation.

Northbound cyclist access across the City West Link at Catherine Street is now available via a traffic light phase triggered by a detection loop in the small green painted area on the southern approach to the lights in Catherine Street.You need to trigger the phase (by placing a wheel on the loop) as the phase does not run automatically each cycle. Bob Moore and I asked for automatic operation on each cycle but the RMS replied " As City West Link is over capacity, we are unable to take time…See More

Bill replied to Snowy_5's discussion Cycleways/SUP additions or extensions or upgrades.
"I would think that most cyclists will position themselves at the front of the right hand lane and make the right hand turn as far as the far side of the CWL where the path to Timbrell Park starts and also the path along the northern side of the CWL…"
