    Hello there, I was wondering, this bikeway from College Road all the way to the bottom of the Centenary pool has really bad or no lighting at sunset.
    Do you know of any intent or plans to add additional lights or reflectors and cat’s eyes along here for cyclists and pedestrians? I have run through here at night and it’s especially dark for pedestrians and although most riders know to slow down, not everyone has a bell or a good headlight. Better lighting would be safer for everyone. Apologies, if this has been raised before and is pending action.

      The BCC has received multiple complaints and keeps saying it is on there priority list! The CBD BUG has also raised the issue. Our best advise is to add your voice to the calls for lighting by calling council on 3403 8888 and putting in a request for lighting.
