An excellent article on the place of bicycles on our roads from the ABC:
Vicroads believes control of the gravel is a CoGG responsibility but does sweep the road shoulders each month.
The BUG has raised this issue with CoGG seeking to fix this dangerous intersection, have the gravel removed and the shoulder restored to a suitable condition for use by cyclists.
after our meeting with Vicroads the temporary path promised has been delivered. This new path will allow cyclists who wish to keep off the roads to access the Waurn Ponds Creek Trail from the Barwon River Trail with a minimum of on road riding.
Site preparation works have commenced for this new bridge; at meetings with Vic Roads we have been advised that the paths around the river will remain open throughout construction, if works impinge upon the path a temporary path must be laid around the works.
Victorians will go to the polls on Saturday, and so Bicycle Users Geelong has contacted the candidates up for election in each of the districts in the Geelong region. Each candidate was asked about their position on cycling issues so that we could present the responses to Geelong region cyclists, allowing them to make a more informed choice on Saturday.
The new plan from the City of Greater Geelong for the Northern Section of the Swanston Street Bike Link is now available for community feedback. The plan, which covers the section of Swanston Street North from McKillop Street, features almost exclusively one-way bike paths adjacent to existing footpaths.
