I notice in this document that there is very little in the way of information regarding cyclists / bicycle access / cyclist consultation etc
http://www.westconnex.com.au/documents/ ... ep2013.pdf
Some cyclist related quotes:
Issues raised during the community consultation pertinent to the M4 Widening include:
Need to consider alternative modes of transport, particularly public transport and
Where pedestrian and cycle routes are disrupted along the M4 Motorway/
Parramatta Road corridor by construction activities these would be rehabilitated
and reinstated as soon as practicable. If necessary, routes would be relocated
to provide better future access.
A traffic and transport impact assessment would be undertaken as part of the
environmental impact assessment. This assessment would identify potential impacts
and nominate mitigation measures to minimise impacts. It would include:
An assessment of the impacts of the project on road users including motorists,
public transport, freight, pedestrians and cyclists; on local and regional road
Construction of the project has the potential for the following socio-economic related
Impacts on road safety for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians particularly at
proposed interchange upgrade locations.
Potential changes to access for pedestrians and cyclists near construction works,
including the cycleway near Haslams Creek, and for pedestrians using the
pedestrian overbridge at Silverwater
I'm a tad concerned they're going to do a M2 to us, banning cyclists all over the place for 5+ years.
Has anyone heard further info on it? Are related BUG's/Cycle clubs getting involved in the consultation process? (LACC comes to mind!)
