"That’s good Bill. East end of Lilyfield Rd will still be needed as part of a detour route until 2023 when the Parkland path will replace it as the link to Anzac Bridge. Option 1 in the Supplementary routes is the Francis St one that Bike…"

"Hey Bob, the latest estimate of sea level rise based on the last ice age melt is 3.4m/century so in about 50 years the Rozelle Interchange will flood at high tide."

"Pretty poor, putting us as threats to the road workers.  I’ve  seen a few cyclists use the footpath on left to get past the boom gates when they are doing one way working. They allow car parking on the railway side, mainly for their…"

"Pat, you have a choice. Either cough up the thirty or fifty million dollars yourself or get the cyclists, who might benefit from this tunnel, active politically. Otherwise, don't hold your breath waiting for action."

"G'day Bob, the usual drainage gradient is 1%, so it wouldn't be too bad even going "up-hill". If you reduced the tunnel cross section 5 x 2.4m (12m^2) then perhaps the cost might reduce to $36 million. Bear in mind that there…"
