Shonkies Prize Winner 2022


let me announce the Cough Cough winner of the Shonkies Cycling Infrastructure award 2022
Salt Pan Creek
In 2017 I quite enjoyed exploring Salt Pan Creek and the pathways which I did walk in places.
Now its a pretty awful place to take your bike, the floods have not done it any favours. But worse than that is the burnt out bridge that connects the east Riverwood to the west Padstow. It also ruins any reasonable path between Bankstown and Riverwood. Above the bridge pass 10000+ cars a day. Its the only connection between four suburbs.
It’s a disgrace
Previous recipients were
Sydney Harbour Bridge steps twice
All the crap bollards in Sydney
The peoples park mountain at St Peters
