CBD BIKES ACTION – HANDS OFF BICYCLE LANES!

Filed under: advocacy, Events, General — schmadzie @ 3:21 am

 from AndrewD at Bikesydney

The Cross City Tunnel wassupposed to ease traffic congestion in the CBD.  Now it threatens bicycle lanes across the CBD and East Sydney.  It's a disgrace!  

Join the Greens and the bicycle community to protest the current attack on
bicycle lanes in the CBD. 1:00pm Thursday 15th June 2006Martin Place
(between Elizabeth & Philip Sts)SYDNEY CBD

In an attempt to salvage the failed Cross City Tunnel project the Government has foreshadowed the closure of bicycle lanes on William Street.  This places under threat
other bicycle links that were planned across the city, including a bicycle lane on Kent Street that linked William St with Pyrmont Bridge.
By seeking to vary the conditions of consent for the Cross City Tunnel
which will result in lost bicycle lanes, the RTA is breaching the
Government's own policy to build bicycle infrastructure into all
motorway projects.  The RTA's continued overriding of planning decisions
also places uncertainty on other routes leading to and from the city,
such as the bicycle lanes planned for Epping Road as part of the Lane
Cove Tunnel project.    

Join the protest to say HANDS OFF BICYCLE LANES!
Bring your bikes.  Bring your friends. Contact:  Greens MP Lee

  3. im assuming others have read the rbbish on smh.com.au today from miranda devine (http://www.smh.com.au/news/opinion/traffic-hazard-ahead-vegan-cyclists/2006/06/14/1149964604277.html?page=fullpage#contentSwap1
    ). well, heres what i sent to smh in reply :

    miranda devine should stick to her silver 4wd turbo diesel coffee swilling champagne shooting stuck up lifestyle and leave bike riders alone. she can sit at home on the couch watching the latest planet ark tv advertisement and feel good that she recycles her christmas cards and uses enviro bags when she shops… and as she’s driving away from the shops in her 4.8 ltr turbo diesel, she can feel warm and fuzzy in the knowledge that she does nothing to help the environment and nothing to aid anyone but herself… see, she’s not the only one that can make grosely generalised sweeping statements.. the difference is, she gets paid to do it. utter rubbish.
