Council approves final concept plan

over 1 year ago

Council considered a report about the final concept plan at a meeting on 27 February 2018. It was determined that:

1. The revised concept plan for Local Route 7 be approved subject to:

a. The proposed LR7 be examined with respect to its connection to the Cooks River Cycleway;
b. That the Edwin Street, Tempe section of LR7 be amended to an on-road, mixed traffic treatment shared cycleway, rather than the proposed shared path;
c. Any decision concerning the route of the cycleway at Florence Street and Campbell Street be delayed until full consideration of the WestConnex widened Campbell Street cycle path (including the potential Florence Street/Campbell Street crossing) is fully examined:
d. That an examination of the route be given with regard to Daburi Lane;
e. That consideration be given to the proposed pedestrian/cycle path along Sydenham Station as a consequence of the Sydney Metro;
f. The effects of enforcement, as a consequence of LR7, of the 10m parking rule on street corners along Henry Street be well communicated to the local community; and

2. Detailed designs for the route be developed, with particular regard to:
a. Potential treatment of School Lane behind Tempe Public School as a ‘Shared-Zone, given its nature as a narrow laneway with no footpaths;
b. Examination of a contraflow bicycle lane on Union Street and Mary Street.
