Randwick Council is busy implementing Greens Councillor Lindsay Shurey and Murray Matson’s successful proposal that it protest the moving of the light rail line from the south side of Alison Road to the northern side along Centennial Park.
At what cost will be this unnecessary re-alignment of the CSELR light rail line on Alison Road?
Randwick Council regards it has unfair that the re-alignment was implemented by the State Government after the two bodies had signed a painfully negotiated development agreement for the project.
Councillor Matson commented,
“It is now an act of bad faith for the Government to threaten the Alison Road trees by having realigned the rail line after Council had signed the Development Agreement in a spirit of cooperation.”
Randwick Council supports the CSELR light rail but knows the cost of the unnecessary change in the Alison Road alignment.
Randwick City Council emphatically says that the Alison Road alignment of the CSELR should be moved back to the southern side or middle of the road.
Randwick Council has a political message that it wants the NSW State Government to hear about the alignment change to CSELR.
Randwick will lose its recently planted street trees and Centennial Park will lose some substantially older nearby fig trees. Also to go is the Alison Road bike path.
