"There are very good reasons not to let some road users (including cyclists) from using some roads (including tunnels).
But if this is an issue then the solution really should be looking at appropriate signage and appropriate routes for those road…"
"Exactly my point earlier.
Also note that plenty bridges across highways could be considered short tunnels under that definition. Lots of highways are dug through and then have covered over sections where bridges cross.
Likewise lots of shallow…"
"One issue that never seems to get discussed is the effect of wide one way streets we have in many of our capital cities.
These are very much pedestrian and cyclist unfriendly. They supposably increase traffic flow but their actual benefit is…"

Not quite that simple, I'm not sure you understood the kid on the bicycle comparison. Boulders and prams are not…"
"You can blame NSW govts anti cycling laws on many things but hardly the bust of Cell.
Cell was a well established business in a non shrinking market. Their fundamental business model doesn't seem risky, in fact it seems solid.
"For every intersection? Even in areas of low pedestrian traffic. That would drastically reduce intersection flow capacity and would be a highly radical change. Im a strong advocate of pedestrianising our streets but that is just inefficient."
