On an average weekday 2,000 people use the cycle way over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. That's 10,000 a week. That means on the Milsons Point side 2,000 cyclists are pushing bikes up and down a stairs with a thin ramp in the middle.
This seriously outdated infrastructure needs to be addressed with a ride up ramp to access the bridge. With increased demand on the cycle way we need to provide a faster, safer way.
A new ramp would also make the road safer for pedestrians and motorist by clearing bikes off the existing surrounding paths. This project is long overdue. The Council needs to work with both state and federal entities to get this off the ground.
This upgrade could also serve as part of a wider redevelopment of the Kirribilli Markets area.
