Pedestrians, cyclists and calm local streets will be formally recognised in the City's traffic management and planning if Council supports the unanimous recommendation of the Monday's meeting of the Planning, Development and Transport committee to rename Sydney Traffic Committee
The committee will be renamed the Local Pedestrian, Cycling and Traffic Calming Committee to reflect the Committee's aims, objectives and the matters it considers.
The Committee is an open monthly meeting chaired by the City and attended by the Roads and Traffic Authority, State Transit Authority, Police, Transport Workers Union, Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and a Cycling representative. As Member for Sydney, I am represented by a local resident on the committee, as is the Member for Heffron and the Member for Marrickville.
The Committee manages activities which occur on streets and footpaths across the City, which may include applications for street events, changes in parking, introduction of car share spaces, pedestrian amenity, traffic calming measures and cycleway projects.
- The Committee meets on the third Wednesday of the month
