A petition, everyone. It concerns that tricky southern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway - 2014-2-19
Please take a moment to read our preamble (it's not your usual FB one-liner!) and feel free to voice your thoughts and Share amongst your Friends!
Our passion at Bicycle NSW is creating a better environment for cycling and we are always keen to encourage others who share an interest in doing the same - whether it be our local communities, our local affiliated and non affiliated bicycle user groups, the business community or our government agencies and politicians from all levels of government.
We understand that there are many different people with many different approaches all who want to create a better environment for cycling and we are keen to do everything we can to support these individuals in our community. We know that showing consideration and respect for others in our transport systems, regardless of whether they are walking, riding or driving, helps to create a better environment for cycling.
Many who ride in and around Sydney will be familiar with the southern approaches to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway at Observatory Hill, and in particular the congestion that happens around the morning peak at Fort Street School. You may be interested in considering the recent petition originated by a parent from the school. See below:
