Article - Australia: Bike lanes dangerous, cyclists warn

The state of New South Wales spends less per person on cycling than any other state, resulting
in cycleways that were poorly planned and often dangerous, bike lobby groups warned yesterday as the Government denied that under-used bicycle lanes were a waste of money.

The motoring group NRMA has accused the Iemma Government of wasting millions of dollars on building cycleways that attract few cyclists, including a new bicycle lane on the choked Epping Road, which the NRMA says will in effect cost $300,000 for every cyclist who uses it.
