SYDNEY ROAD COMMUNITY RIDE - MAKE IT SAFE
This event is being organised by the Moreland Bicycle Users Group (MBUG) and the Office of Tim Read MP are helping promote it.
As Brunswick and the surrounding areas continue to be a popular place to call home, our roads, our trams, and footpaths will continue to become increasingly busy.
With everyone becoming increasingly frustrated by the congestion it's more important than ever that we protect our most vulnerable road users.
The 18-month closure of the Upfield Bike Path (currently closed), was the perfect opportunity to trial separated bike paths on Sydney Road and begin the revitalisation of this important community hub.
Instead, the state government have given Morelanders dangerous, totally inconvenient, useless detours. The detours will add up to 2km per trip and take children and families down untreated backstreets and across un-signalised major intersections.
How will families, kids and everyday users get to school and the shops safely?
We’re tired of being ignored and almost forced back into our cars through careless, inconsiderate state government decisions.
It’s time to show Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan, Roads Minister Jaala Pulford and Member for Pascoe Vale, Lizzie Blandthorn, that we won’t be ignored.
Join us for a family-friendly, Sunday bike ride down Sydney Road to tell the State Government we want safe, protected bike lanes down Sydney Road now.
We’ll begin at Bell Street Coburg and ride all the way down to Princess Park, Parkville at a family-friendly pace.
This will be a safe event with police escorts and road closures.
More details to come. Save the date.
