Randwick Councillors won’t be surprised by media reports that the controversial Albert “Tibby” Cotter Walkway over Anzac Parade is to come under the scrutiny of the state’s auditor-general.
In May last year Green Councillors Lindsay Shurey and Murray Matson successfully moved that Randwick Council: “Express its opposition to the Government’s proposed shared pedestrian bike bridge over Anzac Parade”.
At the time the Greens thought that a better idea would be to integrate a pedestrian and bike tunnel into the then planed light rail tunnel under Anzac Parade rather than a bridge over it.
Councillor Shurey said back in 2014,
“The Greens support a pedestrian and bike tunnel alongside the section of the light rail tunnel that will cross Anzac Parade but not this puzzling elevated bridge idea.”
