Queenslea Drive de­fer­ral

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Footy Finals 2015 -

CLARE­MONT coun­cil­lors de­ferred a de­ci­sion on whether to build a bike lane on Queenslea Drive at a meet­ing last week.

The coun­cil es­ti­mated the pro­posed lanes be­tween Christ Church Gram­mar School and Vic­to­ria Av­enue would cost $165,000.

Vot­ing against the mo­tion, Cr Chris Mews said there was no need for the lanes and ratepay­ers’ money would be bet­ter spent else­where.

“If driv­ers swing out around cy­clists it’s cre­at­ing dan­ger that isn't there now,” Cr Mews said.

“I live nearby and most cy­clists are early ris­ers who ride be­fore they go to work and they’re usu­ally off the road by 7am.”
