A pop-up cycleway is going in on Bridge Rd. City of Sydney says this cycleway forms an important link between the city centre and the inner west. It will provide access to health services, including Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, and educational institutions such as Sydney Secondary College (Blackwattle Bay campus) and the University of Sydney. This cycleway will be a safe alternative to bus travel for commuters who would usually use Parramatta Road bus services. Kerbside lanes are being converted into a protected bike lane, which will be designated with painted lines, divider barriers and flexible posts. The speed limit is reduced to 40km/h along the cycleway corridor.

The NSW government changed its mind about the Powerhouse at the 11th hour. We want them to do the same about their ill-conceived plans for the Sydney Fish Market. @DPIEWE WON! 🙋♀️🍾
I’m so thrilled the NSW Government has today committed to saving the Powerhouse Museum. SHARE to spread the great news!
Since the NSW Liberals announced the proposed sale of the Powerhouse Museum in 2015, our City of Sydney community has been campaigning tirelessly to stop it. This was at one of the rallies in 2016 with Tanya Plibersek.
Thanks to the NSW CFMEU, whose commitment to impose a Green Ban was a significant step towards preserving this cultural institution.
Thanks also to the thousands of museum and creative professionals who stood with us to Save the Powerhouse, including Cate Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton, who stood up to preserve one of Sydney’s significant cultural spaces.
Finally thanks also to the many in Western Sydney, including many councillors on City of Parramatta who have welcomed the investment in western Sydney but not at the expense of local heritage, and been so integral to this success.
Like the Glebe Society, our local state member, Jamie Parker, is opposed to the appalling over-development of Blackwattle Bay. His website includes an image showing just some of the state government's crazy plans for the area, including 45-storey towers on the current Sydney Fish Market site, and the lack of green space. @sydneyfishmarket @NSWDPIE @gladysnsw ...
