Remove parking from Sydney road Between Weston and Barkly street to make cycling safer.

This petition had 2,502 supporters

I watched a young man pass away after being run over by a truck on Sydney road. Alberto Paulon's death was very much preventable and he had every right to be riding on this road. 

Cyclists are being made to squeeze between parked cars and moving trucks, trams, buses and cars at this point on Sydney road. We are asking the governing authorities to remove the parking between Barkly street and Weston street and put in a full time bike lane. This section of Sydney road is quite narrow between the parked cars and traffic. The amount of cars parked here is increased by the position of Barkly Square which has ample parking at the rear of its premises. 

This will hopefully stop cyclists being put in a position where they are unable to swerve around opening car doors without being run over by following traffic.
