A-Maze Gone. Bridge To Remain Clear

The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) has indicated that it will “..not be proceeding at the moment” with the proposed A-Maze garden installation on Pyrmont Bridge.  For now, the bridge will now remain clear for safe passage of walkers and riders. Our campaign outlined how the proposed 180m long, 6m wide A-Maze installation would introduce […]

Cycling and Light Rail

No Cycling in Green Square?

Green Square is the darling child of the City of Sydney.  Effectively, a green field site relatively free of the state government’s interference, the site presents a clear canvas for the City’s vision. Located just 3.5km from the city centre and 4km from the airport, the precinct is expected to attract 54,000 new residents and 20,000 […]

How to get Utility Companies to play fair?

…Don’t rely on the intervention of the government and approach them directly of course.

State Govt delays AGAIN

  BIKESydney MEDIA STATEMENT 26 June 2013   BIKESydney calls on the State Government to deliver its Central Sydney Access Strategy.   In deferring the delivery of the Central Sydney Access Strategy (the integrated transport plan for the CBD), the State Government has again blocked the delivery of critical cycling infrastructure in the CBD. Potentially terminally. The […]

Leichhardt Cuts Bike Budget

  At its extraordinary meeting on 21 May 2013 (meeting Minutes here) Labor and Liberal Councillors resolved to slash Leichhardt Council’s cycling budget to zero (from $400,000 per annum).
