Push to shut Clover Moore’s City of Sydney shared cycleways: No risk assessment of city’s shared paths increases threat of law suit

Published On: 08/11/2014

A push has begun for Clover Moore’s City of Sydney shared cycleways — where pedestrians battle for space with bikes — to be closed down.

Lawyers predict the council could be sued by a person injured in a collision between a bike and a walker because a proper risk assessment of the city’s 51km of shared paths is not in place.

In a response to a series of Questions on Notice about shared bike paths from Liberal councillor Edward Mandla, the council said it did not have to adhere to the Austroads guidelines for shared paths because they were “discretionary”.
