Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 3 2008
4 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 4, 2008 MB COUNCIL ELECTIONS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Greens: Future is car pooling CAR pooling is the way to go according to the Greens. They say they will introduce a system using the internet to encourage car sharing and pro- vide a permanent virtual garage sale for Burwood Coun- cil residents. ''The Greens want to see a council-sponsored website that allows commuters to type in the details of their commute to work,'' Burwood Greens candi- date Christine Donayre said. They could find a neighbour to car pool with to save fuel bills, reduce traffic congestion and decrease climate-changing pollution from traffic, she said. Beauty turns into beast LAUREN MURADA Cr Michael Cantali says changes to Five Dock roads could cause an accident. Picture: BRENT McGILVARY PP186620 GREAT North Rd in Wareemba and Five Dock is in need of a quick fix, Canada Bay councillor Michael Cantali said. The council's changes to the main road to ''beautify the streetscape'' had failed to consider common sense, Cr Cantali said. ''I think the concept is great and it does look better, but we need to be mindful of the safety and practicality of the residents,'' he said. In Wareemba, the council planted several trees down the centre of Great North Rd, near Coranto St. ''If someone is 'yahooing' down the road you can see they're going to have an accident,'' he said. Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said the work had been done to help improve business in the area. ''The beautification work is to simply encourage people to come down to Wareemba,'' he said. ''I'll have the safety issues inves- tigated and, if there are safety problems, then we'll make appro- priate changes.'' In Five Dock, the footpaths bordering Great North Rd have been remodelled and Cr Cantali said the money was not well spent. ''We spent $5 million on the footpath and it's a bloody dis- grace,'' he said. ''In Concord we spent 60 per cent of the money with double the result.'' Beautifying the suburb has angered Canada Bay resident Claudio Barbato. He said a median strip from the Five Dock Hotel north to the traffic lights should be ripped out. He said it changed the road from two lanes on each side to one lane on the left heading north. ''If a car breaks down it blocks everything,'' he said. But Cr Tsirekas said: ''It's an RTA road, so dealing with emerg- encies would've been taken into consideration when they built it.'' Donations have to be declared DEVELOPERS who give more than $1000 to local councillors will have to publicly declare their donations under new rules which come into force on September 15. Anyone who stands to gain from a development must declare gifts and donations over $1000 to a political party or councillor for the two years before their appli- cation comes before council, the Planning Minister or the Director-General of Planning. Objectors to any development must also declare political do- nations over $1000. The rules are part of a State Government push towards trans- parency in government and co- incide with new rules requiring all political donations to be de- clared every six months.
