We work with the local councils of Canterbury/Bankstown to improve cycling infrastucture in this areas.
We have also met with companies involved in the WestConnex project regarding its effects on cyclists. We regularly make submissions to RMS and council projects.
Greater membership of our group would give us a more powerful voice in these areas.
If you have concerns regarding any cycling issues contact the group or come to one of our monthly meeting.
Council portal for reporting cycling and other problems within the city area.
Canterbury Bankstown City Council has created a draft plan that identifies the priority infrastructure projects to provide a high quality, connected walking and cycling network that enables residents to move about the City.
Have your say on the proposed 12 cycle routes. The plan is open for public comment until 1st March 2021. Here is our chance to guide the building of better cycling infrastructure in our city and its links to other areas.
How to have your say
You are invited to have your say by completing an online submission. If you have questions or want to learn more about the project, please contact the Council officers listed on this page. You can have your say on the Active Transport Action Plan by:

Canterbury Rd Underpass (on Cooks River Cycleway)
Suggestions for the ‘Detour’ around construction site from members to be put to CBC. Peter has put together a submission with several possible dtours depending on cyclist abilities and needs. Peter, Warren and Sue are having an onsite meeting with council in early October.
The Lang St Bridge on the Cooks River Cycleway has been replaced. It’s a great improvement.
Dirt path between Lang Rd and Younger Ave is being formally made a gravel path but cyclists are not permitted on this path. Use the new bridge and the Ewen Park side of the river.
Tempe Underpass Bollard Warning
Just a warning of the new bollards installed at the Tempe rail underpass. After advocacy by different BUGs council has improved them, especially for recumbents, tandems etc but they are still an issue on this blind corner area.
Have heard they are temporary until August 2021.
