Bouquet Despite the rain local families were lined up at 7am to watch the fencing come down and then be first to try out all the new equipment at the brand new Little Manly Point Park playground. Everyone is very excited to now enjoy this new and improved playground. Just in time for school holidays the playground is packed with happy kids and their carers. But beware of ticks, they too seem to be enjoying the playground popularity.
Brickbat Marine Parade continues to be battered by the East Coast Low, escalating the need for a concerted effort to upgrade and improve the area, particularly the stormwater infrastructure, both public as well as those pipes coming directly from private landholdings into the bay.
Bouquet Lots of new raised pedestrian crossings installed along the Steyne, including across Victoria Pde.
Bouquet to all the passengers supporting the new Emerald Ferry timetable. The weather has been wild and so have the seas, but the big swells on the harbour haven’t dampened the enthusiasm of commuters for the ferries. A revised timetable along with the faster trips is seeing more commuters starting to catch the Emerald Ferries, with the daily average of passengers peaking at 10,864 in April but dropping back to 8,018 in May this year. This does not include the Fast Ferry passenger numbers.
Bouquet to Council for installing temporary stairs into Cabbage Tree Bay at Bower lane.
