Greater Geelong votes to remove separated bike lanes from Malop Street Green Spine project: on this weeks program Chris discusses the City of Greater Geelong vote on 25 February to remove recently constructed separated bicycle lanes that are part of the Malop Street Green Spine project with two interviews with Dr Fiona Gray and Simon Howell from Bicycle Users Geelong.
Local news includes Melbourne could become the Copenhagen of the south but what part of Melbourne, given the huge residential development in the outer suburbs.
Dr Fiona Gray talks about her initial involvement with Malop Street Green Spine project, the consultation process, pop up installation, the entire plan involving six blocks of the Geelong CBD, state government funding, the project winning the Civic Landscape category of the 2019 Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture National Awards, last week’s council vote and state government moving to potentially cease future council infrastructure funding.
Simon Howell from Bicycle Users Geelong talks about the seperated bike lanes, it’s positive benefits for the Geelong CBD, the council vote and further action people can take.
