"G'day Bob, agreed, the Timbrell Drive footpath is tiny but nevertheless I have seen two cyclists storing there preparing to cross the CWL heading south. Agreed that the back streets to the south of the CWL are a better route to Bunnings but I…"

"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

"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

"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…"

"Hey Bill, IWC planners now are saying they will be asking for a shared path along Parramatta Rd from Norton to Balmain, rather than a Dismount and Walk  section. This change came about because they reckon all the shops there have set back…"

"There should be a Cycleway along Pyrmont Bridge Rd from the Foreshore path to Banks St when the new Fishmarket is built. Can then use Bulwarra and Miller/Union to avoid the narrow final bit of PB Rd."
