On a nice Sunday morning urban bike ride passing the Southern tunnel ventilation outlet at Woolloongabba

The background is the "visible part" of the new CLEM7 tunnel which should reduce traffic over Story Bridge and on other streets. The tunnel ventilation outlet in the North at Bowen Hills is red-white and would have matched better with the colors of my bike helmet, but it was impossible to take a similar shot there. Even this one was quite tricky for Corinne: she had to lay the camera on the street in the right angle. Sadly the tunnel does not reduce (global) traffic at all, not even by "minus one car"! But clearly, the main message on my new bike shirt is: "As long as you ride your bike, you are not in a car contributing to the traffic on the road and the corresponding pollution." Unfortunately you then act as a filter, breathing the exhausts of the cars ... and yes, I know, you will blame me for not being consequent - particularly when I drive our 4x4 ...
