Cycling in Melbourne Australia
"The foundation of the State's bike infrastructure investment, the VicRoads Bicycle Program, has been slashed to zero. (Some commitments from previous budgets are still trickling through.)
None of the high priority infrastructure projects which were planned for next year have been funded.
Desperately needed lanes, signals, intersections and other urgent safety improvements have been dropped"
A couple of thoughts I have on this. Where is a peak state body for advocacy on these sorts of issues ? (rhetorical, kinda).
Secondly, are there any planned actions / protests / rides / letter writing campaigns going on ? If you know of one, post it here and I can help get the word out.
This State Government is completely insane. My suggestion is that we hold a "Drive to Work Day" If we could get every cyclist to drive (or take public transport if they don't have a car) on a selected day it would cause mayhem. Maybe then the government and hardline motorists would appreciate our existence.
