Darkinjung proposal will have impact on Woy Woy

If you believe the proposed Darkinjung 70-lot subdivision at Kariong will only impact residents in that area, be assured fallout will extend over many a ridge and gully.

For example, use of Woy Woy Rd, which will require an interchange not only for the residents but also for emergency vehicles called to action to fight the inevitable fires.

Woy Woy has been identified as a centre of growth.

How many additional vehicles will occupy this main network, from Woy Woy area and the wider transport catchment?

In a recent issue of Peninsula News, irregularities in growth projections were identified.

Will traffic management studies associated with the proposal include traffic volume calculations covering the plethora of possibilities?

Due to the location of the Woy Woy Rd interchange, costs will exceed standard construction costs with a requirement of installing additional safety equipment, warning lights and alarms.

Who will be responsible for costs to meet increased safety standards?

This is only one item of many that will have a cost blowout.

Already the scene is set for a repeat of the argy-bargy financial disputes associated with the Ettalong dredging finger-pointing.

If you are driving past the site for the proposed subdivision, consider the future changes to the road network and the impact it will have on time and safety.

It is your time and safety at stake.

Woy Woy Rd is a known accident black spot, and any closure is a disaster.
