Fellow CAMWESTies,
                                  I know this is very short notice, but some of you in the Mountains may have an interest.

Hi everyone

Just in case you don't know RMS is holding a public info session at the Community Hall in Blackheath tonight and tomorrow about the road works planned for between Katoomba to Mt Vic.


In 2013 there was a successful community campaign by local cyclists, children and active transport supporters that saw the Blackheath to Medlow Bath stretch be included in RMS's preferred treatment works. The plan is to have improved surfacing in this stretch funded by RMS as part of the road improvements to the current bike path which runs along the railway which will open it up to a much broader range of cyclists, disabled people, children and the elderly or anybody who isn't very confident cycling on gravelly surfaces. 

This is a one off opportunity to get some better infrastructure in. Also for road cyclists it's critical the wide shoulders proposed in the preferred treatment works are kept in. This was a major win in the campaign and will make it a much safer proposition to move between towns for road cyclists.


If you can't make the meeting (see below) please consider dropping an email or feeding back.

Thanks and happy cycling! Please share among your networks.
