Toowoomba has suffered from 'cycle experts' in the past, at great cost to tax and ratepayers and with very little concern from our government or council.

 Here (above) we see that $220,000.00 of public money was spent on a white line, called a 'bike lane' but in reality little more than a car-parking lane, since parking is allowed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every week of the year.

And (below) we can see a sight that made TMR Minister Rachel Nolan burst into laughter when she was shown a photograph of the scene.

A 'shared path' is normally for pedestrians and bike riders, but here our 'cycle experts' though it would be more jolly if the power poles were invited to share the path too.

After a little reflection as to the 'wiseness' of such a design, all was resolved with some white paint and a strip of red tape around the poles.

Clever, eh?
