Between George Street and Macquarie Streets, Sydney
Sydney, New South Wales 2000

Martin Place (between Elizabeth & Philip Sts), SYDNEY CBD
The Cross City Tunnel was supposed to ease traffic congestion in the CBD. Now it threatens bicycle lanes across the CBD and East Sydney. It's a disgrace! Join the Greens and the bicycle community to protest the current attack on bicycle lanes in the CBD.
In an attempt to salvage the failed Cross City Tunnel project the Government has foreshadowed the closure of bicycle lanes on William Street. This places under threat other bicycle links that were planned across the city, including a bicycle lane on Kent Street that linked William St with Pyrmont Bridge. By seeking to vary the conditions of consent for the Cross City Tunnel which will result in lost bicycle lanes, the RTA is breaching the Government's own policy to build bicycle infrastructure into all motorway projects. The RTA's continued overriding of planning decisions also places uncertainty on other routes leading to and from the city, such as the bicycle lanes planned for Epping Road as part of the Lane Cove Tunnel project.
Join the protest to say HANDS OFF BICYCLE LANES! Bring your bikes. Bring your friends.
