"Although they know about this discussion, the submission period is done now.
Not a bad idea: I wonder if they designed for 2.4m merely because that is what they have been doing in the busier parts of town. The extra 600mm would make a world of…"
"One of my LGA's has been known to shave a few hundred mm's off the traffic lanes to make bike lanes safer. Might be worth suggesting because it will also (theoretically) slow down the traffic in that area."
"So consultation for Wilson + Burren closed yesterday.
The Wilson bidi is shown designed at just 2.4m, while the guideline width is 3.0m allowing occasional drops to 2.4m where isolated narrowing is necessitated.
I wonder if they'll find a way…"
"Exactly right. The LNP shelved the Greenway plan that would have seen it follow the light rail all the way to Lilyfield and then go through the goods yard to Anzac Bridge because it interfered with gift tot he road building lobby that is…"

"A couple of bike lockers? Is that all you've got? People want to cycle to work, to school, to the shops, to a restaurant, not just to the local train station. The Carr Gov lack of action is your straw man - they are well gone. The continued…"
I just saw weiyun's comment, re the DHBC web site layout in Safari, that he added to the Bitten discussion. I was wondering why he put it there. Ideally an issue like that would be communicated to the DHBC webmaster (you?) through the DHBC web site.
If I could make a suggestion. Many sites have links in the site's footer that are not specifically related to the topic of the site but rather to the construction and management of the site. I couldn't see that at the DHBC website (using Firefox on a mac). The "contact us" link on the side menu seemed to be for messages to the club secretary who, I expect, is more concerned about running the club than running the web site.
On Sydney Cyclist, for example, the footer contains a link to "Report an Issue". Other sites often have a "Webmaster" link or similar that will allow the user to send a direct message to the webmaster.
A link like that on the DHBC site would allow web site users (members or not) to have the option to report issues or suggestions for improvement directly to the people who would be most interested.
