Responding to consultations is an important part of what we do. There’s an active group pressing for Triple A quality (All Ages and Abilities) and for capacity that will encourage more people to cycle, and plan for the projected levels of 20% within 10 years.

  • Proposals for Coronation Rd - Dean Lane crossing

    Draft plans have been circulated for this is very important and heavily used route for walking and cycling at the south end of Gaol Ferry Bridge (plan).
