    • There were 1500 comments on the revised plan, most negative it appears, particularly from residents opposed to the one way restrictions proposed. The recommendation now going to the Traffic Committee, on 6/3/18, is “not to proceed to the design stage”. Instead they are recommending another round of investigations of the cycleway concept. This would include dropping the contentious no right turn into Lilyfield Rd, but making it one way west instead and investigating other unspecified ways to prevent rat running. They have given ground on the width issue, now saying they will seek to have a 3 m wide cyclepath “where possible”, and they have said they will look at bicycle phasing at Balmain Rd traffic lights instead of the cross over point near Edwards St. Also they say they will investigate how cyclists could use the road instead of the cycleway from James St to the Canal, but still retain the two way cycleway for those who wish to use it.

      Full details on the Traffic Committee agenda for 6/3/18 on the council website, under Supplementary Agenda. Big file, includes maps of the plan and all the comments by residents and others.

The Masterplan appears to be dead, but something new may be developing. Neil and I asked for a meeting with the responsible Minister (Gabrielle Upton) and actually got one yesterday, with an adviser. We put a list of items we thought would improve cycling to and in Callan Park, based on the submission to the Masterplan back in 2011. The adviser listened and we got a good hearing, but she was tightlipped on what might happen. Our submission is at

    Meeting with RMS and TfNSW on 25/2/17 about Pyrmont Bridge Road. Hoping to get bike lanes or other improvements for the commuters who regularly use this road into the City.

  • After many years of lobbying and effort by the Friends of the Greenway and other groups the State Government has committed $7.5 m dollars to the project, on the proviso that the three local councils (now one Council, Innerwest) put in a matching amount.

    Construction should start soon in 2017 and involves tunnels under Longport St and Old…[Read more]
