Government promises on road improvements are in the slow lane

To listen to our politicians over the last few years, or even the past decade or two one might have accidentally come to the conclusion that Sydney roads were for driving on.

Many of our country listeners won't have had the pleasure of sitting for half an hour in traffic moving at an average speed of 18 kph or so.

So let me explain Sydney traffic. Imagine crawling around in a vehicle running in first or second gear barely nudging above idle speed, and spending more time with your foot on the brake than you do with your foot on the accelerator.

Of course peak travel time commuters dream of the type of driving where you put your foot down and get to your destination quickly, efficiently and without too much fuss or bother.

Now if you can stop laughing and stay with me here.

Over the years we've had all sorts of examples of these types of comments that could easily confuse the motoring public... with everyone from Premiers to Government Ministers, Opposition Leaders and Spokespeople and even representatives from the NRMA talking about improving road conditions, and reducing travel times .

Lets face it in reality 16 years of this government has showed they have no interest in improving roads in Sydney beyond a slow moving car park, but if you want to get on a bike and take a ride... Turn It Up.
