MAYORAL MINUTE

 

REQUEST FOR SUPPORT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A CYCLE LINK ADJACENT TO THE INNER WEST LIGHT RAIL EXTENSION AND CITY WEST LINK ROAD

       

 

I am in receipt of correspondence dated 17 March 2011 in relation to support for the construction of a Cycle Link adjacent to the Inner West Light Rail Extension and City West Link Road.

 

To the capitalisation on this unique opportunity a request for support in approaching the State Government to immediately fund the link to provide for the long term cycling needs of the Inner West, letters of support to the Premier and Minister of Transport are requested.

 

 

Officers Comment

 

Phil Sarin, Director Planning and Environment – The proposal is a logical extension to the Greenway corridor and would provide a unique opportunity to link the Inner West with other major cycle routes.
