Master plan for The Parade getting closer

Wider footpaths, retention of trees and an extended median strip remain in the draft master plan for The Parade, which will go out for a final round of consultation next week. I successfully argued for the retention of the slip lane for turning left onto Portrush Road, and traffic modelling done before any final decision is made on banning right-hand turns into some side streets. 
Community feedback included the need for more parking, and the Council will soon be exploring how the Webbe St car park can be extended up. A scramble crossing is still being considered at the George St intersection, and the traffic lights muted for the Edward St intersection was thankfully scrapped.
