Time to Develop a New Cycling Plan
This is an important time for cyclists in our region. The Parramatta Cycleways Committee is beginning a review of the Cycling Plan. This plan will determine recommendations for spending of money on cycling infrastructure over the next few years. We hope to put information about the progress of the work here, so that you may comment on it.
The last meeting of the Parramatta Cycleways Committee (12 September 2006) decided that members would review particular routes on their bicycles, including but not restricted to the following criteria:
- Logos, arrows, line marking
- Road crossings and kerbs
- Suitability of existing route — includes grades, safety
- Personal security
- Sight lines — can you see far enough ahead?
- bike parking, security of bicycle
