Too much traffic in Hillview St already
In response to the nursing home refusal story (Peninsula News, November 27), I am writing to ask if it is possible to have the Roads and Traffic Authority to come to this site and check it out.
All the residents in the area already have to contend with the traffic flow with two schools adjacent to this property, and Hillview St is also the alternate route to the expressway for most of the Umina residents.
This traffic constantly flows in peak hours as well as school hours.
It is hard to get out of our streets and onto Hillview St without any more traffic input from such a large development.
I do not know how much parking has been allowed for the extra staff and visitors to this development, and feel there should be no parking along the property on Hillview St, as it blocks the view of drivers trying to get out of their streets
Have road works such as entry and exit lanes been planned?
Another article with this information would be in the interest of many local residents.
There is also the subject of native wildlife and their habitats that would be permanently disturbed by the length of time it will take to go ahead with this amended development application.
