Welcome to our Lane Cove Local News week in review, where we tell you what has happened over the last seven days in Lane Cove. This week, it was all about traffic and the gridlock at two major intersections.
The other big news was school going back for all years, and St Michaels had a lovely message for students (see our cover photo).
Did you hear the helicopters flying over Lane Cove today?
Don’t panic – it is the army training. They released the following statement:
Traffic Gridlock around Lane Cove Village
Finlayson Street and Birdwood Avenue were packed with traffic on Monday Morning. With traffic not allowed to turn right into Burns Bay Road from Tambourine Bay Road, this has created increased traffic along those streets. The Lane Cove Council advised:
River Road West Near The Diddy – Gridlock on Monday, October 25 2021
Services Now Open
Lane Cove still has Active COVID19 Cases
This week the Lane Cove Council Local Government Area recorded three cases. Nine out of the last 10 cases have been in Greenwich.
COVID-19 cases and tests by local government area as at 8 pm 27/10/2021 Last 4 Weeks Data
|Cases*||Cases with unknown source||Total tests||Test rate (per 1000)|
The tables show the location of residence by Local Government Area (LGA) or local health district (LHD) of locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the last four weeks. It is based on the date the person first developed symptoms. When no date of symptom onset is available (it is either under investigation by public health staff or the person tested positive without showing symptoms), the date of the positive test is used. Infections are not always acquired in the place of residence as people often travel outside their area for many reasons (e.g. work, school and shopping). Cases without an NSW residential address and people who were exposed interstate or overseas are not shown. Case counts may vary over time due to ongoing investigations and case reviews.*Includes all locally acquired cases (known and unknown source)
The data below the number of active cases (active cases are cases where a person is in isolation and is being managed by NSW Health)

Swimming Lessons – Government funding
Good news for parents who are looking to teach their children to swim.
The NSW Government’s new learn to swim voucher program will be expanded from preschool-aged children to include kindergarten kids who missed out on lessons due to COVID restrictions.
Under the ‘First Lap’ program, eligible children can access a $100 voucher for swimming lessons with an approved provider, with businesses able to register for it from next month.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said the program, which starts on December 1, would be extended to cover children in kindergarten this year or who are starting kindergarten in 2022.
“Because of COVID restrictions, our kindy kids have missed a crucial window of being able to develop the skills they need to stay safe in the water,” Mr Perrottet said.
