The Canberra Times has this story today about UC vice-chancellor Stephen Parker wanting more cycle lanes in Canberra.
“UNIVERSITY of Canberra vice-chancellor and keen bike rider Stephen Parker has called for more cycle lanes in the ACT to be physically separated from cars and other vehicles.
Professor Parker has been made the patron of the ACT’s lobby group for cycling, Pedal Power, and he says Canberra’s cycle routes could be improved.
”The cycle paths available were pretty good years ago but they’re not so cutting edge now,” said the reformist academic leader, who has overseen huge growth and changes to infrastructure at his university in the past five years.”
”Canberra really needs bike lanes physically separated from cars if we want to get a lot more people riding.”
Hmmm, I thought that’s what bike paths were?
