With blessings, tributes, welcomes and live entertainment, the event was run mostly by volunteers from the society who shared their knowledge of historic aircraft. Photo supplied: Howard Mitchell

Highway upgrade axed: The state government has axed a proposed upgrade of the Princes Highway through Burril Lake on the south coast, following failed consultations over the Milton-Ulladulla bypass. Members of the community co-design committee resigned from the group earlier this year over frustrations the bypass would stop short of the coastal village and instead, a multiple lane highway would be built through the town.

Death by dangerous driving: A lawyer for the teenager charged over a crash at Buxton which claimed five lives has asked a Sydney court for an expedited listing for a second bail application. Find the latest in this story here.

Double demerits: Drivers in New South Wales will face double demerits for four-days due to the public holiday for the Queen’s death. All speeding, seatbelt, and mobile phone offences will incur twice the usual penalty. Metropolitan Roads Minister Natalie Ward says the state government is legally obliged to introduce double demerits around long weekends.

Getting ready for the World Cup: Australia’s Matilda’s will travel to Denmark for a friendly next month. The match will be played on October 11, three days after Australia faces South Africa in London. The draw for next year’s home World Cup will be held at the end of next month.

Providing public parking: Wingecarribee Shire is being asked to consider creating a Voluntary Parking Agreement for car parking contributions for any new development in Bowral’s town centre. The scheme would be created in lieu of providing on-site parking. A report to this week’s council meeting says the cost of providing public car parking is substantial and starts at a minimum of $60,000 per space. It recommends the council determine a ‘per space’ contribution rate before the proposal is put out for public consultation.

Stay off CBD roads: Transport for New South Wales is advising motorists to avoid driving through Wollongong central business district during peak hour due to increased traffic caused by the cycling world championships. The closure of several roads in the city being used for the event has created congestion along arterial roads still operating such as Crown Street and Memorial Drive.

McKeon family honoured: The Swim Coaches and Teachers of Australia Association has recognised the local McKeon family with the 2021 Outstanding Contribution to Swimming in Australia award at an event on the Gold Coast. The recognition was given to the whole family including dual Olympian and Olympic coach Ron McKeon, Commonwealth games competitor and operator of the McKeon Swim School Suzie McKeon, and their children, Olympians Emma and David McKeon.
