"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."

"Interesting to meet someone who actually lives in the forum. Is it a good place to live? Is the piazza noisy for those above it? Do you get to know your neighbours? Any chance of a cycle route through the car park to link Norton with Balmain…"
