Hi my name is Brent and this is my first entry on the site. I own a Honda V25 Custom and am lucky enough to live at Wombarra which is on the coast road between Sydney and Wollongong. The thing that most upsets me is the new bridge. Not only has the traffic increased by about 400% since it opened but the road that used to hug the steep cliffs and wind its way around the coast has now been replaced by a huge concrete slab that sticks out about 50 metres off the cliffs and now resembles a single lane freeway for its straightness. Now dont get me wrong, i ride a cruiser so i dont like taking corners at too high speeds. But i think the govt made the new road so straight so people can drive along at close to 30kms an hour and admire the view our great coastline has to offer. Give me the natural feeling of winding around those beautiful old cliffs any day. I guess we do just live in a concrete world when a couple of loose rocks falling in the rain can lead to hundreds of millions of $$$ being spent on an unnatural eyesore.
