Randwick Green Councillors’ position justified on controversial Anzac Parade Walkway – 10th July 2015

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 2014 Randwick North Ward Greens Councillor Lindsay Shurey called for the then planned Anzac Parade walkway to be dropped in favour of integration in the designed light rail tunnel.

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.”
