If this all goes ahead then hopefully there won't be too many disruptions to the path while construction is underway and I wonder what impact this will have on traffic. With any luck the bulk of residents will commute by train/bus/bike.

You know.. the last google maps capture was Jan 2014 and it was before two of the new blocks. I'll take some video tonight for you. :o

Ok, see if you can spot the difference in the amount of private property stored on the streets.

Here's the Toowong Woolworths application

Appendix E is Traffic, done by TTM again. The cumulative effect of all these developments isn't considered.

Not much about cycling in there at all. There's a note about how there are four CityCycle stations nearby, and cycle parking in the development.

Toowong is already a door zone derby. I imagine this will only make it worse. Unless of course they see that cycling is the solution, and a Toowong minimum grid would help a lot.

Yeah, there needs to be a protected bike lane along Sherwood Road, joining across to the Bicentennial Bikeway. At a minimum. 

Judgment day

"The project will provide an extension of the Bicentennial Bikeway along Coronation Drive to Archer Street through the site to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists." said Julian Simmonds

Pretty shit judgement.  Screws the council height restrictions as well as the distinctive design that exists all around the world due to the architect firm pimping themselves out with the one idea.

Is it just me, or does that document only show the odd-numbered pages?

Someone needs to learn the difference between one-sided and two-sided copying and scanning.
