Bike Lanes Rolled Out in Melbourne for the Climate Emergency

This Weeks’ Edition of Only in Victoria.

The City of Melbourne is fast-tracking the creation of bike lanes in order to “tackle the nation’s climate emergency”.

The council voted this week to bring forward the creation of 44km of bike lanes to help achieve its 2040 zero emissions target.

The plan requires some road lanes currently used by cars to be taken over by bikes. This will, of course, cause greater congestion throughout the city.

Whatever reduction in emissions the council achieves, as drivers switch to push bikes, will be lost as roads are transformed into giant carparks where vehicles sit idling.

The plan will make what was once the World’s Most Liveable City into even more of a hell hole than it currently is, while making zero difference to the climate.

Only in Victoria.

This is a classic case of idiocy compounded by stupidity.

Just shut down the whole silly project and start returning the city streets to the useful system it once was.

    Thanks James. I guess this fits well with the 15 minute city agenda. And of course the agenda of removing the rights of Australian citizens to even own cars.
    I wonder what will happen when the leftist activists begin to realise that they too are being used for the new world order agenda ? That they too will be considered “ useless eaters “ ?

    James, good call. I am more upset about the majority of Victorians asleep at the wheel of their own state, and voting this madness to continue unabated. When will they ever learn? Perhaps the pain needs to bight deeper still before they wake up!

    In Ballarat, the council spent (should I say wasted) a fortune on bike lanes in the city many of us haven’t seen a bike on them since they were constructed!
    On another matter , once we had global warming, now we have climate change ! Is it caused by us, or is it a natural phenomenon? Whatever Australia needs to grow up and go Nuclear, Have a look at RollsRoyces nuclear power station. see RollsRoycesmr.
