The local action group is called CRAG. They have a new website about this topic here:
They have some great thoughts on funding the solution that you could consider including.
It seems to me that the CRAG people are very highly motivated, I've met then once or twice
and they will appreciate any support from us. They also have Holroyd Council's 100% support.
Could you pls repost the letter, or email direct to me as I can't open any of the links.
There's a nice cycle path bridge across the M7 down toward Elizabeth Drive,
one of those would do us just fine, but Ian makes a good point that we need to specify the width and alignment carefully
I was down at this site last weekend with the kids, it seems as though the whole thing is hardly progressing visibly at all.

I have no objection to the letter being sent under the CAMWEST banner.
The RTA reply you refered to is indeed a generic one sent to a number of groups, I received a copy myself recently following a letter campaign organised by a local group interested in the canal reserve (I forget the name but a few months ago they where collecting signatures for such a campaign). I expect, as a consequence, you will merely get a variation on the 'traffic flows and cost' don't justify a bridge response.
However, a word of caution. Be carefull what you ask for, we might actually get a bridge but its design and construction could be such that cyclists may not be able to ride across but be forced to wheel their bikes due narrowness of path, inncle of ramps and dog leg turns.
I have drafted a letter to the Miniter for Transport, Mr Borger in protest aginst the failure to build a bridge over Reconciliation Road at the old Boral Quarry site. I have included the contents here & would like to forward it under the CAMWEST Banner. Does anyone have any objections to its content or direction?
