Saw a message in another forum tonight. It appears that motorcycles may be barred from using transit lanes. Not sure of their status now. Apparently the signs on the Eastern Freeway (MEL) which list what a transit lane is for (allowed vehicles) have been removed. Also, it appears that the transit lane that was recently established along Hoddle St is the same. The person who wrote the note wrote to the Transport Minister, Peter Batchelor asking him whether bikes are allowed to use the transit lines or not. He hasn't bothered to reply, to date. The current government is concerned about ever increasing congestion and the pollution that this causes. A part of the solution would be to encourage the use of two wheeled transport. Apparently, this isn't being considered in the overall picture. Comments, anyone?
