Moreland City Council is conducting a review of the Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy, now ten years old. The review of the Strategy is likely to:
- develop initiatives to address challenges such as transport congestion and peak oil
- harmonise local policies with state and regional initiatives
- prioritise Council’s advocacy efforts in relation to transport and land use investments
- provide direction for future funding of transport infrastructure.
Written submissions to the review are invited and are being received up until Friday, 28 March 2008. Submissions can be forwarded to:

Moreland BUG will be at this weekend’s Sydney Rd Street Party with an information stall and free valet bike parking.
The BUG stall and bike parking will be at the Brunswick Uniting Church at 214 Sydney Rd (corner of Merri St).
Apart from free bike parking, the BUG is also offering free giveaways, maps, and possibly simple bike repairs.
See you there between 12pm and 6pm (parking will be operating from 11:30am to 7pm).
OK, we now have the details for VELOROCK…
29th March, 2pm – 7pm at the Brunswick Velodrome, Harrison St, East Brunswick, next to the Merri Creek bike path.
No, this doesn’t mean that only bikes can attend – their owners are more than welcome too. What it does mean is that all gear will be transported into the Velodrome via bicycle – amps, guitars, stages, the lot!! This is a follow-up to the gig held last year, which apparently was a raging success.
The next Moreland BUG meeting has been brought forward one week and will now be held on Thurs 21st Feb, so that we can confirm all the details for the Sydney Rd Street Party (which is on Sun 24th Feb, 12pm-7pm).
The venue will be Caffe Mingo, 600 Sydney Rd Brunswick, from 7:30pm – hope to see you there.No comments
Two mates, a coupla push bikes, a passion for music and adventure, and
15,000kms of cycling ahead of them. What a mission!
Melbourne musician Rob Sawyer and good mate Harv Scholes will be taking the idea of the troubadour musician that extra step, embarking on a national tour cruising from town to town by bicycle.
The tour cuts out the carbon emissions of another car or flights from city to city, and spreads the word about keeping Australia clean and beautiful. The first show for the tour at The East will be a huge send off party with the bikes on display. Unfortunately the boys won’t be able to get drunk with you one more time – there’s lots of pedaling to do!!
Come and give the boys some encouragement at the first show for the tour, on Wednesday 13th February, at the East Brunswick Club.
Doors around 8pm, $10 @ the door. Rob will be playing solo + support from Luke Foran (QLD).
Come check out the bikes Rob and Harv will be riding, and farewell them hopefully for a successful 4 months of cycling around the country.
