Welcome to our Lane Cove Weekly Review for 17 to 23 April 2017.

This week we had an electrical fire in a lift, the escalators not working again at Lane Cove Market Square and the last ever E-Waste collection at Riverview.

Fire in Pedestrian Bridge Lift

Three fire trucks attended an electrical fire in the lift servicing the pedestrian bridge near. Get ready for a long delay in fixing this.  You can find out more here.

E-Waste Collection

The last E-Waste Collection was held in Riverview. Residents are now able to take a short drive to the Community Recycling Centre at 8 Waltham St Artarmon. The recently opened facility accepts E-waste as well as a string of other household items, such as paint and chemicals etc.  You can find out more about the new facility here.

On Saturday members from the Lane Cove Sustainability Action Group assisted residents, unable to do so themselves, with their E-waste disposal.



Just a reminder that the Lane Cove RSL Sub- Branch will hold their ANZAC Day service at 7.30 on Tuesday.  We have the low down on other ANZAC Day events here.


Double demerits points kicked in from Friday, April 21 and will be in place from Tuesday, April 25.

The double demerit road safety campaign encourages safe driver behaviour on our roads and applies to speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, riding without a helmet and illegal use of a mobile phone.  Police have been extra vigilant on River Road West this weekend.

School zones will also be operating on Monday, April 24.   Do not park outside a school during school drop off or pick up time as rangers will book you.

Police remind motorists if they forget and are caught driving at 60km/h in a 40km/h school zone, they risk incurring 10 demerit points.
