    SYDNEY ROAD IS CHANGING SOON

    Planning is underway for major changes in Sydney Rd including disability access tram stops and possibly protected bike lanes, wider footpaths and better use of parking off Sydney Road.

    This is a once in a lifetime chance to make Sydney Road safe and welcoming for all road users. Moving parking off street will allow wider footpaths, protected bike lanes and trams no longer held up waiting for car parking movements.

    Come and help the campaign, next meeting Thursday 6pm, St Ambrose church meeting room 287 sydney Rd Brunswick.

    For more information see Revitalise Sydney Road.

  • PassBox

    Whatever your opinion on a one-meter passing law, good data is hard to come by to know for sure either way.  It might be the #157th most important thing to make riding a bike safer and more popular, or it might be the next best thing after protected bike lanes and filtered permeability.  States that have introduced this law have done no before-and-after studies to determine whether there was any effect, beneficial or otherwise. Victoria may introduce a 1m law soon, so time is short to rectify this data deficit and get measurements before a law exists, and to continue with measurement after a law is introduced.

    You can help by volunteering to mount a PassBox on your bike for a week on our website for this project at http://passboxmelbourne.com/.
