Lane Cove Week in Review – 24 to 30 April 2017

look before you step
Welcome to our Lane Cove Weekly Review for 24 to 30 April 2017.


The annual ANZAC Day service was again conducted by the Lane Cove RSL Sub Branch. Around 1700 people attended the event. That is a great turnout considering it was still school holidays. In 2015 (100th Year anniversary) there was a massive crowd of about 3000 people.

The ceremony included a tribute to Flight Sergent Oakes which you can read in full here.

Cafes after the service were packed.  ITC will remember to book a table next year.


Lane Cove Public Transport Forum

A Lane Cove public transport forum was held by the Lane Cove ALP branch at the new Lane Cove community hub. One member of the crowd said he spoke to the NSW Minister for Transport who said the 292 will be going down Mowbray Road from June 4th.

This forum was held in the week when Anthony Roberts announced more buses for Lane Cove. The new timetable for the 294 is here.



Rat Baits have now been laid all around the Lane Cove Village.

The police advised that apparently there is a group in Sydney specifically targeting Toyota’s 4×4’s, Hilux and Land Cruisers etc. They enter through the passenger door. And worryingly they do it silently bypassing vehicle alarms. They Steal the Sat Nav console and wing mirror motors.
