Comprehensive Eastwood Traffic and Parking Study
Published on 31 October 2017
City of Ryde Council is taking action to make the Eastwood area more accessible for all with the adoption of a Mayoral Minute that calls for a comprehensive Traffic, Parking, Cycling and Pedestrian Study of Eastwood and its surrounds.
The Mayoral Minutes responds to community concerns about traffic in and around Eastwood town centre and multiple quick-fix offers by the State Government to build an Eastwood commuter carpark without the evidence to back them up.
The comprehensive study will look at issues associated with traffic flow (vehicular, pedestrian and cycling), future land use, as well as on-street and off-street parking needs.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, said: “Eastwood needs a long term solution to traffic and parking in Eastwood with a comprehensive plan that looks at all the contributing factors.
“Eastwood is a rapidly changing centre that needs a holistic approach.
“There have been multiple attempts by Victor Dominello MP to apply a band-aid fix. They have all failed and Council will not be making the same mistake.
“The residents of Eastwood and the City of Ryde deserve much better.”
The study is likely to take 4 to 6 months to complete.
