Flying over Woolloomooloo??

The latest local brainwave is to build an aerial cycleway to the city by clipping it on to the railway viaduct over Woolloomooloo. This was raised by cycling supporters at Council's recent Community Forum in KX.

Cr John McInerney supports the idea and is feeding it into the City's cycle strategy but the RTA or someone would have to stump up the money. That would at least make up for their removal of the William St lanes. Don't hold your breath though.

If you think the idea is pie-in-the-sky, the picture shows what they already clip on to motorways as mere decoration. This example is in Ultimo, but they spent even more on decorating the western distributor near King St Wharf.
