"Once the railway side of Wilson st gets developed the parking situation will be much worse there, the impact of a bike lanes are pretty small really and Wilson street has a lot of non-time restricted parking on it (relative to the rest of the area).…"
"There was a consultation on Wilson St today, a few local residents were not happy about losing car parking (as usual), a few were worried about the danger of having to get out of their cars parked next to the cycleway. There were also a few people…"
"Airport Drive has definitely improved. Our club bunch rides through there on Wed morning - we still get stopped 50% of the time but often we can see the green lantern ahead with cars waiting to turn left and it changes. Still better than it was at…"
"Good points. If they could only restrict curb crossings along there, one or two as access for the inevitable underground parking and one for the inevitable supermarket. Otherwise it's going to be stop start all the way. But of course Urban…"
""The problem with the bike boulevarde option is how easy it would be to water it down to nothing in the face of the coming densification of Wilson St. A cycleway stands a fighting chance of not only surviving, but influencing that densification…"
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.
