Bypass options on agenda at meeting

THE push for the so-called Byron Bay mini-pass has been brought to a halt for now and instead Byron Council will hold a public meeting to discuss all traffic management issues for the town.

That meeting, at a date to be announced, will look at all options including "full" bypass and mini-bypass options and the costs involved, paid parking, park and ride, bus parking and transit % station options, bicycle use and pedestrian "usage".

Residents will be invited to submit questions before the meeting and peak Byron Bay organisations will be invited to make presentations.

The mini-bypass option was brought to a head at last week’s council meeting with staff seeking direction on whether to continue planning.

A report to the meeting said if councillors wanted planning for the option to continue, it would have to allocate $50,000 to carry out detailed designs and costings.

Several options have been put forward for the mini-bypass, but they all involve utilising the emergency rail crossing at the southern end of the railway station.

It also would require a new roundabout at the intersection of Jonson and Marvell Streets and the removal of the coach and bus stop in Jonson Street.
