Sydney Rd revamp plans

Monday, 6 March 2017 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Its a stunning autumn morning as Val and Faith kick off the show with their respective bike moments. 

Discussion turns to Sydney Rd, Brunswick and Coburg and a statement from the RACV supporting the removal of car parking from the strip to facilitate the movement of people in cars, trams and on foot and on bikes. With the State Government bound to implement accessible platforms for the tram by 2022, there is an opportunity to improve the flow of pedestrians, trams, cars and bicycles along the shopping strip and simultaneously improve the environment of the street for shoppers visiting traders. Sydney Rd is unque in that there is enough existing off-road car parking spaces to replace those lost by removing on-street parking. You can find out more at Revitalise Sydney Road

These include; 55+ Pushy Social Ride, Stop Fining Healthy Transport Ride, Melbourne World Naked Bike Ride, Cemetery Discovery Tour, the start of the Indian Pacific Wheel Race and the 2017 Women's Ride.
