Coun­cil ap­proves Nid­jalla Loop clo­sure

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
