*** FEATURE: Cycle Lane Design
We feature CAMWEST's preferred design for on-road cycle lanes. It fits a cycle lane between the motor traffic lane and a parking lane. This design is a much better improved solution and addresses a number of the issues raised in our report on cycling issues in the Parramatta LGA.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your recent efforts to improve cycling in Parramatta. Please adopt CAMWEST's preferred cycle lane design as the standard design for the Parramatta LGA. I feel it is a significantly better and safer solution.
