TMR Consulation on Northern Bikeway

Consultation to start on North Brisbane Bikeway Stages 2 and 3
 
The North Brisbane Bikeway is being delivered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads in partnership Brisbane City Council to encourage more people to cycle, more often.
 
The department is consulting on the North Brisbane Bikeway Stages 2 and 3 from Friday 22 May to Wednesday 10 June 2015 and are seeking feedback on the proposed plan.
 
A feature of the North Brisbane Bikeway Stages 2 and 3 is the inclusion of priority pedestrian and cycle crossings at a number of intersections. These crossings operate similarly to pedestrian ‘zebra’ crossings, providing people walking and cycling with priority over vehicles when crossing the street.
 
Please see the attached flyer and search for North Brisbane Bikeway at tmr.qld.gov.au to see an animation of the proposed priority crossing in action and find out more about the project.
 
If you require further information on this project, please contact the project team on 3066 9135 or by email at during business hours.
 
Alternatively, please contact the Department of Transport and Main Roads on 13QGOV (13 74 68)during business hours.

Help Allan Weatherley raise funds for MS


To my fellow cycling fans,
I’m writing to you because I know that we regularly get out on our bikes and enjoy either a social ride or a good race. Now I’d like to seek your help for my commitment to raise vital funds for more than 23,000 Australians living with multiple sclerosis and who don’t get to enjoy some of the lifestyle we take for granted.

MS is the most common disease of the central nervous system and strikes young Australians in the prime of their lives.

Did you know?

• The average age of diagnosis is just 30
• Four people are told they have MS every working day
• There is no known cause or cure

My company, Enerflex is a major supporter of the MS Australia and I’m riding as part of the Enerflex MS Brissie to the Bay to support the people who have been told they are living with MS and will be seeing big changes in how they live their lives. 
Your donation will go directly towards a wide range of programs and services that help improve their quality of life.  Some of these services simply would not be possible without the support of people like you. It only takes a small donation to make a practical difference:
$ 40 - Can provide much needed transport assistance to physiotherapy and psychology support services
$ 75 - Can install a hand rail in the home of someone living with MS to reduce restrictions when using stairs  
$ 120 - Can install a shower chair in the home of someone living with MS to give them back their dignity  
$ 250 - Can provide a cooling vest to someone living with MS to better help manage their body temperature  
$ 350 - Can provide a life-changing stay at a respite retreat (McKinnon House) for someone living with MS  

Please take a moment to view my online fundraising page and help me reach my fundraising goal.  You can donate quickly and securely online by clicking on the link below:

https://msqldevents.com.au:443/champion/MS-Brissie-to-the-Bay-2015/AllanWeatherley

A tax deductible receipt will be sent straight to you from MS Queensland when the transaction has been completed.

You can make a huge impact and help fight MS.  Please sponsor me today.

Please contact me if you would like some more information.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Regards
 
Allan Weatherley
