    I have resided in Whitehaven Road for 12 years. I currently travel to work by car. Over the last few years it has become increasingly difficult to turn left out of Whitehaven onto Moxhams Road due to the amount of traffic coming up Moxhams Road. Congestion starts from 7 until 9.15am and 2.30 till 4.00pm. There are numerous cars, parents and children at this intersection and I cannot believe that someone is wanting to put ANOTHER child care centre in what is already a well serviced area. Please come and see before this ridiculous application is considered.

    Having resided on Moxhams Rd for almost 10 years, being not far from the address subject of this application, I can say first hand how ridiculous it is. Ordinary peak hour traffic coming from Winston Hills starts on some days around 5am, with the intersections of Whitehaven and Klien's Rd's coming to complete grid lock. Trying get our car out of our driveway takes on somedays 15 minutes. Added to this Noosh at Northmead Public starts at 7am with countless drop offs occurring from this time. This then starts again around 330pm up until 7pm. The parents already have extreme difficulty finding a car spot as it is. In addition, when trying to turn right from Whitehaven into Moxhams becomes a blind turn on account of the grid locked traffic on Moxhams. I have first hand seen numerous near miss collisions at this intersection. This is without factoring in the near on 900 students who attend the school from 8am onwards. These parents have trouble also finding safe and legal parking to start with, let alone adding more congestion with this possible development. We have resorted to allowing other parents to use our driveway to safely get their kids to school. The current parking available can't accommodate the current level of usage, let alone having more strain added to it with this insane development. The safety of the students and general public will be put in grave danger if this is approved.
