Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 16 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 17, 2008 29 STREETVIEW Plan better than nothing Joseph Agkeik Jacqui Marks Michelle Smith Colin Roubis Gay Holmes It's been hugely controversial since it was first suggested, but the State Government remains determined to push through its planned duplication of the Iron Cove Bridge in Drummoyne. Last week the government released its preferred design for the $156 million Victoria Rd upgrade, including a new three-lane bridge. The Inner-West Weekly went to Drummoyne to ask locals for their reaction to the latest plan. Joseph Agkeik, of Gladesville: I don't think it's going to make a difference to the traffic problems. I think it's going to be a big bill for the State Government and tax- payers, and I think nothing is going to change with the amount of traffic. Jacqui Marks, of Drummoyne: I don't think it will achieve what the government says it will because it's obvious, as a regular bus user, that the bottleneck is not the bridge. The bottleneck is at Lyons Rd and then Darling St. Michelle Smith, of Drummoyne: At least they are doing something. I'd prefer it to be a tunnel or a different option. It's probably not the best solution, but it is something. Colin Roubis, of Drummoyne: I don't know if this bridge is going to be a long-term fix but I don't know what the long-term fix is. My idea would be to have dedicated bus lanes both ways. Gay Holmes, of Drummoyne: The traffic bottlenecks are at Darling St and Lyons Rd, and need to be addressed. A bus lane will only work (if they create bus bays) so the buses can go in off the road. OPINION Yo u decide truelocalbusinessawards.com.au Vote now Authuroised under NSW permit number LTPS/08/03817.
