Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You
A motion to address concerns of shop owners on the corner of Unley Road and Culvert Street failed to get up last night.
With a number of residents acclaiming the Glen Osmond Creek project and the converting of Culvert Street into one way and the prospect that we might see the pedestrian lights sooner rather than we otherwise thought, the motion was lost. It was also confirmed last night that the ability to acquire a small portion of privately owned land that would enable Culvert Street to return to permanent two way status and alter the location of the Crossing was simply not possible; the property owner indicating no desire to sell.
The majority of elected members felt it was not prudent to undo what we have done knowing we would end up undoing the undoing (is that good English?) if the Pedestrian Activated Crossover stands any chance of coming forward.
