Leah St 25km speed limit; What's taking so long?
As most of you are aware the request by residents through their Councillor, Bob Schnell, has been sitting on the Minister's desk. Tom Koutsantonis has now been sitting on this for over 2 months. We were told last Friday that their was a hold up because Council was yet to provide further detail on a particular issue. So after it sitting unread for months Council have now been asked to provide a Traffic Impact Statement. This would be a major piece of work and could take months to get completed. You guessed it, Council will be unable to provide it until after September when the reduced speed limit would no longer be required. To me this sounds like just another delaying technique. Council CEO will meet with the Minister later this week to further the matter.
