Active Transport. They are: the Australian Local Government Association, the Bus Industry Confederation, the Cycling Promotion Fund, the Heart Foundation of Australia and the International Association of Public Transport. In a media release, the Active Transport group stated that 16,000 lives could be saved by positive active transportation measures. Major political parties have been urged to embrace Active Transport as part of the policy cure for the challenges of chronic disease, climate change, congestion and pollution.
"Prospect council appears to be out of step with its LGA in its upgrade design of arterial and freigCt route, Churchill Road"
In fact Prospect Council are in tune with the active transport group..in fact if you were to follow the Actvie Transport gorup paper, you would not have a bicycle lane on Churchill Road at all!!
Indeed the Active Transport Group calls for bicycle infrastructue to be separated from roads, just as City of Prospect has been lobbying for the rail corridor to include a ccyle lane.
It is misss leading to base comments on a press relaease instead of the actual paper!
Commonsense and flexibility is always required in rthese debates, just as website host Heather rides her bike on the footpath all the time, pedestrians should show tolerance and accept this as a safe acton. it may be illegal to ride on teh footpath but I have no issue with such action, as we should share the proad and footpath, it is a safe thing to do.
To be so b lack and white is folly.
