Recent / Upcoming Events

3rd Oct: The 'trees' workshop. Video is available courtesy of Richard Taylor. Local resident Cab Davidson attended the workshop and wrote two blog posts afterwards: Part 1 and Part 2.

19th Sept: The 'bus stops and crossings' workshop. Great feedback from lots of people. Workshop participants expressed that their preferred designs for bus stops are for segregation between people walking and cycling, and protection for both from motor vehicles.

12th Sept: Milton Road LLF to introduce the workshop format going forward. Full video by Richard Taylor.

26th July: thank you to all who showed up to support us or ask a question at the Executive Board hearing. The Board elected to adopt the 'Final Concept' design going forward. We find many aspects of the 'Final Concept' design to be of concern, especially the extremely long bus lanes that shrink or squeeze out verges, trees, cycle lanes, bus stops and loading bays. We will continue to advocate for more elements of the better 'Do Optimum' proposal to be adopted into the design.
