Background information

At present there are numerous complaints against cyclists from pedestrians walking from the cable car through to Salamanca Rd. I feel that cycling through here is a safer way to travel to work as I can avoid some of the traffic congestion around the university. A relatively inexpensive solution would be to add a cycle lane from the end of the cable car to the Salamanca Road. This could be done with some white paint and some slight widening of existing path.

Officer's note that as Botanic Gardens are places for passive or low level active recreation, there is limited scope to provide access for cyclists. However officers are investigating safe options for cyclists from the cable car to Salamanca Road.
