Review of Lane Cove’s Bus System – The Outcomes

This week ITC had a meeting at Parliament House where Transport for NSW outlined their short term, medium and long term strategy for Lane Cove Buses.  They acknowledged that leaving the city during peak time was a problem and that the new developments on Mowbray Road and at Linley Point had put pressure on the Lane Cove Bus System. You can read a summary of their findings here.

Glittery Fun in the Plaza

Greenwood Lane Cove had a stall set up at the plaza during the week, providing information about their brand new child care centre in Lane Cove West. They also had fun arts and crafts for the kids.  We were particularly impressed when they kept the stall going despite wind and rain.
