Hi Paul,
           Unfortunately I have a prior family commitment in the country that weekend & won't be able to attend.

I agree with your sentiments re the bridge entirely. I too had misgivings about the portals, but I believe the planned work will have little effect on the visual appeal of this wonderful old bridge and will open up the entire Parramatta River from Sydney Olympic Park to Parramatta Park. 

Once other planned works are completed over the next few years, that link will be entirely off road. This will be a wonderful facility for Western Sydney, opening up the northern banks of the Parramatta River to walkers, joggers, wheelchairs & cyclists and at the same time, linking two very significant recreational areas in Western Sydney to passive transport and active enjoyment.

Please come along & show your support (or opposition) to this proposal, all opinions are welcome.

Fellow cyclists... we need your help!

Parramatta Council have an exciting plan to put portals in the approaches
to the Lennox Bridge in Parramatta. The portals will mean unhindered access
on both sides of the river,  west to Parramatta Park and beyond, and east
to Sydney Olympic Park and the city. It's a watershed moment - we mustn't
miss the opportunity.

A great deal of thought has gone into this proposal, and although I was
initially sceptical about making modifications to this beautiful old
bridge, I am now an enthusiastic supporter. I believe it to be an excellent
example of adaptive reuse.

But we need to show our support as there is large group of vocal opponents.

Please come along to the meeting at the Lennox bridge on Saturday, 17 Nov,
at 10.30am to show your support.

Please bring your family and friends. Cyclists, runners and walkers will
all benefit from this fantastic change. And it will bring a new
appreciation of the beautiful Lennox bridge for us all.

Please come!

Looking forward to seeing you there. Please let me know if you intend to

Thanks and regards
