Bridge Road Pop-Up Cycleways – Letters to the Minister

By October 28, 2020News

I continue to receive a significant amount of correspondence objecting to the recently installed pop-up cycleways throughout the City of Sydney local government area. The majority of this correspondence raised serious safety concerns in relation to the Bridge Road pop-up cycleway in Glebe/Forest Lodge.

A professional safety audit was commissioned by residents in the Glebe/Forest Lodge area, at their own cost, that identified at least 20 serious safety issues associated with the Bridge Road pop-up cycleway. 

On 16 and 28 September I wrote to the Minister for Transport and Roads and sent him a copy of this safety audit. To date I have yet to receive a response to either letter. I continue to oppose these pop-up cycleways and will continue to lobby both the State Government and the City to have these removed as soon as practicable.
