False security of a segregated cycle path

by Tim Rowe, over 2 years ago

I was so excited when I saw Penrith had a bike plan. After the cycle paths were completed I tried riding to work one morning. I was bewildered when I got to O'Connell Street. There was no crossing. The path stopped a foot short of the kerb. The peak hour traffic was relentless without a gap turning in and out of O'Connell street from the Highway. After waiting several minutes I dashed the gauntlet on foot thanking life I wasn't skittled. I have not tried again since. Several years later the intersection still does not have a crossing despite my reports to RMS and Council.
