“Imagine if we could invent something that cut road and rail crowding, cut noise, cut pollution and illhealth – something that improved life for everyone, quite quickly, without the cost and disruption of new roads and railways. Well, we invented it 200 years ago: the bicycle.” The mayor of London introduces his vision for cycling.
Two years ago we raised this intersection with Vicroads and CoGG, to date little has been done apart from scaping and sweeping which has exposed the terrible condition of the road shoulder which is unridable on anything other than a Mountain Bike. Because of the poor condition of the shoulder riders are forced to move into the fast traffic lane under the brow of a hill on a curve which gives little time for fast traffic to react, and is further complicated by double white lines over this area.
Voting for the City of Greater Geelong council elections concludes this week, with the Mayoral position now directly elected. Bicycle Network Victoria has sought responses from candidates from council electorates all over Victoria. We present those responses provided by candidates for the COGG Council.
