siftinsand, to cycling

I lead a club ride today, only 10km
But.

  • It was my first ride as a leader since I broke my arm 6 months ago
  • It was the first ride for another member in 2 years following knee surgery
  • It was the first ride back for another member after surgery for a life altering condition
    So yes it was quite a ride and the sun shone on us
    Cycling is amazing no matter how, where and why you do it ❤️🚲

So despite climate change, Australia's federal government has just committed an extra $3.25 billion into building a toll road and a 20-lane freeway widening.

For those who wonder why Aussies think toll roads are a scam (https://aus.social/@LesserAbe@lemmy.world/112405373613706682), here's a great example of why.

"Pouring an extra $3.25 billion worth of federal funds into Melbourne’s North East Link is a good use of taxpayer money, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has insisted, despite the project’s cost doubling just a few months ago.

...

"The North East Link – which includes 6½ kilometres of tunnels – will stretch from Bulleen to Greensborough. It will widen the Eastern Freeway by up to 20 lanes.

"Allan revealed in December that the 10-kilometre toll road had more than doubled in cost since it was first announced.

"The toll road was initially budgeted at $10 billion and reassessed in 2019 at $15 billion. But the government revealed last year that the updated cost estimate was $26 billion."

Fascinating article about the sustained work in recent years to rehabilitate the Merri Creek, and the positive results for local people, flora, and wildlife.

I’m on a tram in Naarm/Melbourne- weee. - we need to bring these back. Or at least the Metro needs major expansion onto public roads.
(Saw a Metro on Kingsford Smith Drive on Tuesday.)
