Yesterday and today I've returned to using Brunswick St on my commute, mainly just for the change of scenery. But it reminded me quickly of why I generally no longer use the route, and then - this thread. And not just as a cyclist. Between Alexandra Pde and Victoria Pde in areas, the space is so limited when a full lane / two full lanes are given over to parking. The increased congestion then slows the trams, too, which to my mind, are much more important than the average private car being driven down the street. Is the parking really worth that much, and with absolutely no alternative? Really?
