Submission to the Iron Cove Bridge Duplication Plan

Bicycle NSW was approached by the RTA to comment on the Iron Cove Bridge plans, and by SHFA (Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority) and the DoP (Department of Planning) to comment on the Callan Park Land Use Plan.

As a State-based organization, we have broadened our feedback to reference the White Bay Rozelle to Cooks River Marrickville disused rail corridor (the Greenway) and the opportunities to build quality bike infrastructure coming out of any developments related to the M4 East.

Cycling – Getting Australia Moving

Bauman, A. Rissel, C. Garrard, J. Ker, I. Speidel, R. and Fishman, E. (2008) Cycling: Getting Australia Moving: Barriers, facilitators and interventions to get more Australians physically active through cycling, Cycling Promotion Fund, Melbourne.

In August 2007, the Cycling Promotion Fund was commissioned by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing to develop a report on bicycle participation by Australian adults.  The Cycling Promotion Fund was specifically asked to investigate the contribution cycling can make to the health of adult Australians, what barriers exist to increasing participation and what can be done to overcome these hurdles.  The Cycling Promotion Fund engaged four notable academics/practitioners from the fields of health, transport and economics to address these questions.
