CAMWEST News for February 2001

Online version:

* Feature: Parramatta River Catchment Cycleway
In this issue, we look in detail at the proposal for a shared pedestrian and bike cycleway from the Parramatta CBD travelling along the tributaries of the Upper Parramatta river to link a range of outlying areas by off-road routes. It is a crucial route since it links the Parramatta CBD, Sydney's second CBD, to areas where there's little public transport. As such it could eliminate a number of car trips.
