Q10: Please list at least one project or initiative that you will actively support to improve cycling in Brisbane City
As Lord Mayor, I intend to cycle regularly to work from my home in Newmarket, and I will initiate regular “cycle to work / school’ days to encourage greater cycling use by everyone. The best way to do this is by MY example.
Q11: Any other comments you would like to make
I am happy to reduce speed on neighbourhood streets to 40km/hr, but not 30km/hr. Your chart shows very little difference in deaths/injuries between 30 and 40, and I think 40 is an easier ‘sell’ to drivers.
