"Yeah, that's right. The cycleway tunnel will emerge through the cliff face just to the left of derelict house. It will be fitted out with the latest LED flood lighting and jet fans which will reverse the tunnel wind direction every ten minutes…"

"When they build our version, we must remember to insist on jet fans to clear out those diesel fumes, blowing in the direction of travel of course! Seriously, what do we have to do to get cyclists to become politically active? Hundreds of cyclists,…"

"Even if cyclists were confined in a Bi-directional ghetto, car drivers in the side streets would still have to look out for other cars. Believe it or not, car traffic descending  Lilyfield Road travel even faster than cyclists."

Bill replied to Bob Moore's discussion Announcing- the Inner West Bicycle Coalition- first up, Lilyfield Rd
"Agreed that this (and other) road surfaces in the Municipality are a disgrace. As to cost, a mill and resheet for parts of Marion Street and Balmain Road came to $400,000 in 2012. This worked out to $304,000 / km for a 12.8m wide road surface. The…"

"Bill, 30 kph may suit cyclists on the flat but my data from the steep bit down to the Canal records most cyclist commuters doing 50 to 55 kph. 30 kph here would mean riding the brakes down hill all the way and probably tempt car drivers to overtake…"

"No harm in asking. The planter boxes would have to go on one side tho, and you'd have the environmental staff to argue with. if no planter boxes on south  side you could have an uphill kerbside lane of 4 m, including a 1.8 m bike lane, a…"
