1. Pine Pienaar has submitted a detailed plan for Lynnwood to the City Council for traffic calming. As Phillip says, the council simply has no money to implement it. There are a few other options, one of which would be if we could close off Kings Highway at the bridge, at the intersection with Rodericks Road. This will immediately bring down the traffic flowing in that races through both Rodericks and down Kings High way to LynnPark. It will be a tough one to justify but Pine Pienaar has suggested it, and I think that with regards just to the dangers of traffic including busses and taxis that race down Rodericks passed the school, we might just get it right. it will also instantly increase our security in the area. Personally I’m all for it.
2. The liquor license – I scan the gazette weekly, and as to date I am unaware of a liquor license for the old 7-11. I will go down to the new shop in the next few days and just make sure that they are not selling it, but please do follow up at which ever level you can to make sure what the situation is. We will definitely object to any license being either issued or renewed. There are already two licenses for our area – one at Lynnpark and one next to St George’s.
