Clover’s cycleway or the highway

Published On: 26/09/2013

Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore has overcome community concerns and opposition from rival councillors to see her Broadway Cycle Link approved.

Liberal Councillor Edward Mandla told City News the Lord Mayor had intentionally blocked proper consultation. “You’ve got to understand that before the vote we ran a motion to defer it for a month … and the Lord Mayor defeated that motion using her wretched casting vote,” he said.

A City of Sydney spokesperson said community consultation had been adequate and that the cycleway had the support of “the University of Sydney, the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and the Frasers Property group developing the Central Park site”, as well as many local residents and bike users.

The Lord Mayor did not respond to requests for comment.
