A trio of intrepid journalists volunteered for the experiment. One travelled by car, one by bus and one by push bike. All three started the race from the first bus stop after the Gladesville Bridge and finished at the White Bay Hotel in Rozelle. And the results? Pedal power easily won the day, with our cyclist finishing about five minutes faster than the sluggish bus and car. RTA surveys show the Victoria Rd corridor is the most congested in Sydney in the morning and evening peak periods. The sol- ution put forward by Roads Minis- ter Eric Roozendaal and the RTA is to build a $150 million duplicate bridge, comprising three general lanes and a 24-hour bus lane. They also plan to implement a ''tidal flow'' through Drummoyne, and peak clearways through Rozelle and Drummoyne. In its June Budget, the government allo- cated $40 million to the plan. But in a world of spiralling petrol prices, cycling and bus travel may be the way to go.
