Normanstone Rd bicycle lanes get a second chance

posted 22 Mar 2011 18:37 by Tasmanian Bicycle Council

There were some concerning developments in Launceston several weeks ago when the Council voted to remove new bike lanes installed on Normanstone Rd after complaints from residents. The aldermen voted against officer’s advice to delay removing the lanes until an evaluation had been conducted. Thankfully a compromise has been reached and only the middle section of the lanes will be removed.
