In Roxy Lane, pedestrians will soon have priority over cars.

The laneway runs parallel to Kyogle’s Summerland Way from Stratheden St behind the shops and pubs down to Anzac Drive.

Kyogle Council is making Roxy Lane a shared zone.

At the council meeting on Monday, August 8, the council’s Assets and Infrastructure director Tony Lickiss said it meant “people will have priority” in the lane.

The speed of cars and trucks will be dropped to 10kmh.

Trucks will still be able to unload at Kyogle Ritchies IGA supermarket and new line markings aim to make that safer for all users of the lane.

Mr Lickiss said line markings would be painted on part of the 5.5m width of the lane’s roadway from Geneva St to Anzac Drive and this will be done on Thursday, August 18.

This will require this section of the lane to be closed with no car or pedestrian access from 7.30am–5pm that day.

Changing the use of the laneway is part of the Stratheden St upgrade for the CBD masterplan which aims to beautify Summerland Way and Stratheden St.
