A NEW smartphone application will make it easier for cyclists in Wagga to identify danger spots on the city’s roads.
The bicycle “black spot” app was launched by the Riverina Greens in Sydney last week, with Wagga City Council candidate Kevin Poynter, from the Greens’ election ticket, at the event.
“This app is an exciting initiative that provides a simple way for people to contribute to better and safer cycling in Wagga Wagga and building great outcomes for health and our environment,” Mr Poynter said.
“I encourage all cyclists to take advantage of this simple app to identify what they think needs to be done to improve the liveability of Wagga through the provision of cycling opportunities in our community.”
Mr Poynter said the app tied in with existing council projects to develop cycling as a viable transport option.
“Wagga is our city and we need to let our elected representatives know what is needed for us to take advantage of the opportunities that cycling offers our community,” he said.
“The Wagga bike plan, a Council initiative, attempts to build cycling resources over time. This app will be a useful tool in ensuring that process is as efficient as possible.”
