Council approves Nidjalla Loop closure
THE Town of Claremont approved the proposed road closure of Nidjalla Loop at last week’s council meeting.
The loop off Alfred Road, within the City of Nedlands, accommodates housing lots that are being developed. Earlier this year, the lot owners petitioned the City of Nedlands to close the loop, allowing better access to the development area.
However, a report found the closure would have adverse affects on Claremont residents and Swanbourne Primary School.
While the Town believes the closure is unfavourable, there are limited alternative options.
Nedlands has decided contrary to recommendations to continue to pursue the closure.
The final decision is expected to be made at a July City of Nedlands council meeting with the road closure due to start on August 3.
