‘Hollywood’ drug squads over the top

I guess we have to thank Hollywood for the enduring myth that a black-clad squad of elite 'blokes', preferably with cool helicopters, from the capital are needed to crack down on really serious crime in hick parts of the country like Mullumbimby.

A cycleway expert will be sought by Byron Shire Council to review the current design for on- road cycleways around Byron Bay after councillors voted in favour at Thursday’s meeting.

Costings and a funding source will be identified for the length of Bangalow Road, from Clifford Street, Suffolk Park, to Browning Street.

Mayor Simon Richardson’s motion aims to create a ‘continuous single on-road cycleway on both sides of the road, a continuous dual lane on the eastern side of the road or a continuous dual lane on the western side of the road.’

A $292,600 budget has been proposed in the capital works program for 2017/18.
