Lane Cove Week in Review – 6 to 12 Feb 2017

Welcome to our Lane Cove Weekly Review for 6 to 12 February.

It has been a week of hot weather and one heck of a storm.  It’s  been so hot that the Zooper Doopers were selling like hot cakes in Coles and Woolies.


Today the change came through and it was quite windy.  Windy enough to knock down this tree outside The Longueville Sporting Club.


Boomgate Saga

The Boomgate at Lane Cove Market Square Car Park malfunctioned again this week.  Later in the week, a roving reporter told us that they saw the NSW Fire and Rescue removing the boomgate.  When will the Lane Cove Council admit this system is flawed and the small amount of revenue they receive from the car park is not worth it?

Animal Cruelty

A roving reporter advised ITC of a disturbing incident outside Coles Supermarket this week.  Their small dog (who weighs only 10kgs) was assaulted ( kicked and hit) whilst waiting outside.

The Roving Reporter would like to thank the quick thinking Coles staff for the public announcement in store to alert the owner of the attack. Allegedly a male kicked and hit their dog while the dog was tied up outside Coles. The male kicked and hit the dog and then went to his parked car and drove off.

Road Slippery When Wet

There are two sharp curves where accidents always occur when the road is wet.  The hot spots are the corner of River Road and Bridge Street in Lane Cove and Mowbray Road (near Roslyn Street) in Lane Cove North. Remember to drive carefully in these areas when the road is wet.

Car Grease Attack

A roving reporter advised they parked their car on Helen St in Lane Cove North last Saturday night. When the driver returned on Sunday morning their door handle was covered in some sort of black grease/ paste. It seemed like it was deliberately put on the handle by someone. Some people suggested it was bat poo. However, the way the grease was applied it appeared that the grease was a random attack.
