Traffic meetings suspended in The Hills

THE Hills Council has put the brakes on its local traffic committee meetings.

Cr Robyn Preston said councillors chose this approach after a report into the committee's operations and performance they sought in November was not delivered.

"We're not going to pass any more minutes on local traffic committee meetings until we get this report," she said.

The committee was meeting on the third Monday of the month with representatives from government agencies, bus companies and community organisations to discuss road safety concerns.

Three months ago Cr Andrew Jefferies called for a thorough review of the committee's operations and performance including the process in which items come before it.

That motion, and this one, won unanimous support.

Cr Jefferies said the committee should focus on "genuine safety issues" instead of cars parked outside people's houses.

Cr Preston said the committee needed a ranking system, similar to the one council used for footpaths, against which the committee and the public could evaluate complaints.
