We need action on Clarence Street
As we highlighted in our recent webpost and in our fortnightly newsletter In The Loop, Clarence Council considered safety improvements for Clarence Street at its last meeting in December. Sadly, they decided not to proceed with consideration of addtional design improvements which included on-road bikelanes.
We are circulating a petition right now calling on Clarence Council to reconsider this. Clarence St is quite wide and there is ample space to add a painted linemarking which delineates space for cars and space for parked cars and bikes. The picture below lists all the benefits of adding a painted lane marking between the driving lane and the parking/bike lane.
The petition is available for signing at Ride Bellerive and at Bike Ride in Liverpool St. Pls get to one of these and add your support. Contact Di Elliffe on 0411 671 652 if you'd like to get a copy of the petition and take it around to your friends and local businesses.
