Tim replied to Bob Moore's discussion M4-M5 Concept Plan- with bike links in the Rozelle Railyards.
"For the Rozelle yards, I'd expect that Lilyfield Rd would be mainly unaffected. The Crescent path is likely to be a bit of a mess for a while when they do the tunneling there. Speaking for the Iron Cove Link, the doc says "During…"

"restricting sight distances would give motorists a real excuse for SMIDSY. Seems remiss not to mention Dutch style designs of intersections as alternatives to roundabouts."

"Hmmm interesting stuff, given that: a) roundabouts are generally crap for cyclists & b) their principal purpose is to slow and organise motor traffic putting it another way: if you slow cars to 30km/h or less you can remove roundabouts"

Yeah no worries, assuming I can find it... I think it's a standard USA port that you can probably get from any computer shop, but if I find it I'll let you know. I have an SD card reader on my laptop so I always used that.

Ok no probs. Fitness is getting there, although I did get the train to work today for the first time since getting the bike. I still need my weekends off cycling to recover though - the friday night commute home is always a killer!
