Thanks for that. I'll give it a go.

Well it's been a couple of months, & the transport minister has not responded to my email.
I guess he's a bit busy with election campaigning & pretending to commit to spending money on bike infrastructure.

What is the next step, when you're ignored by a minister?

I do hope they retain cycle provisions on the main sections of Reid even if they kicks bikes off at the overpasses / intersections, as when utilised with PSPs' the cycle lanes could save Mainroads, etc. a lot of money if linked together in a thought out way.

Well over a year later and the contradictory signage is still in place. Big 'No bicycles on Highway' signage on the Wanneroo Rd Reid Hwy westbound onramp, then once on the highway it is followed shortly after by a 'bicycles cross here' , and then a 'bicycles use shoulder' .
