More Cycleway Madness

Chaos on Bridge Rd ahead
Posted on 6th July 2022

What happens when you move a busy fish market, visited daily by hundreds of trucks and vans, buses and thousands of private vehicles, from a side street to a major arterial road? Traffic chaos, with an expected double the number of customers as the current Sydney Fish Market and almost double the retail space.

Posted on 9th October 2022

Reflections written in 2010 (with some factual updates since) on the social and economic conditions in Glebe in the 1960s and the factors that saw the birth of the Glebe Society. In the intervening 50 years, the changing demographics of Glebe have also played a role, arguably both positive and negative.

Running the gauntlet on the Bridge Rd cycleway
Posted on 11th June 2022

The Bridge Rd pop-up cycleway was a temporary expedient initiated in September 2020. At the end of March this year the NSW Minister for Active Transport, Rob Stokes, announced it was to be made permanent despite there being no solution to the many safety and access issues.

Glebe Island Bridge has a website!

New website highlights the past and potential of this wonderful asset, sadly now falling into greater and greater disrepair. The Society wants to see it restored and put into use as an attractive green pedestrian and cycleway linking Rozelle and Pyrmont.

Posted on 4th June 2021

Transport NSW plans to shorten the 370 bus route meaning that Glebe residents will no longer be able to get a single bus to the eastern suburbs and Coogee. The 370 would end at Sydney University and a new bus route would run from Sydney University through Glebe, to and from Leichhardt.
