A resident brought to my attention several months ago the deteriorating condition of the bikeway that connects King William Rd to Goodwood Rd and runs along the tramline. I raised the matter at two ward briefings. The issue here is that the land that the bikeway is on belongs to DPTI and Council has had an ongoing agreement to maintain the path. However, the agreement has long since expired and DPTI have been unwilling to give consent for Council to repair the path or to fund and repair it themselves. Given the landownership debacle around paid parking on a similar piece of land in the same location it is understandable the Council should not do this work unless it is fully funded and agreed to by DPTI.
