After public outcry over the original plans for the cycleway, which included removing 90 per cent of car parks along the stretch of road, the city council decided to rethink the proposed option. The original idea involved removing 63 of the 70 car parks on both sides of Ferry Rd. The city council has now proposed two new options. The city council’s preferred option is to have cycle lanes on both sides of Ferry Rd, which will leave 10 parking spaces. The alternative option is to have a ‘bi-directional’ cycleway along one side of Ferry Rd that will leave 32 parking spaces. However, Carey Motors owner Tony Carey said both new options would not be good for businesses because too many parking spaces would still be lost. Mr Carey said the city council needed to once again rethink the options because he does not feel like it has listened to what businesses wanted. •Turn to p5 Get your back BACK!
