At the end of March, Bicycle NSW had the wonderful opportunity for our CEO, President and a Board Member to introduce Bicycle NSW to the new Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight, The Hon. Melinda Pavey. This meeting was a follow up to the meetings Bicycle NSW had with the Minister’s predecessor to discuss and negotiate the legislation and implementation of the Minimum Passing Distance legislation, the funding commitment for the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway upgrades and extension, and the data we shared to demonstrate the lack of need for mandatory ID laws for bike riders.
This meeting allowed the Bicycle NSW CEO and President to highlight our key advocacy issues moving forward and opportunities to create a better environment for cycling and demonstrate our focus on NSW and the members we represent across the State.
The Minister is thrilled with the work Bicycle NSW does and is looking forward to forging an even stronger relationship with Bicycle NSW in working towards our goals. The good news is the next meetings to follow up on these discussions are already scheduled.
