    Large trucks are banned from this section of Botany Rd. Not sure why they need to go to this location for diesel as there is now a service station at Port Botany.

    The RMS have taken note of the noise already produced on Botany Road by loud vehicles, that is why the RMS have recently been installing soundproofing apparatus on homes on the stretch. Soundproofing does little to nothing when you have a B-Double or a vehicle with a loud exhaust rumbling down the road, which occurs regularly every night of the week. The old council fought for years to take these kind of vehicles off the road during the off peak airport curfew times, extending these working hours will be welcoming them back.

    Brad. Lets be clear on what noise abatement has taken taken place. It was offered free of charge to those residents who have owned their properties for 7 years or more. For those owning for less time, there is a sliding scale where the owner must contribute. Maximum cost is $30,000. For someone who has owned for 3.5 years, that cost would come in a $15,000 for that owner, making noise abatement costs out of reach. You are right, noise abatement (and its not sound proofing) does little to stop the noise of a b-double who regularly and illegally travel this stretch of road. Noise abatement does nothing to stop the vibration caused by such a heavy vehicle.

    For the health of residents on and around Botany Road, this includes the effects of noise while residents attempt to sleep and pollution caused by large vehicles, this proposal should be rejected by the council, and port related vehicles use petrol station located at the port away from residential properties, which can serve port related vehicles 24/7.

    Further more, the residents of Botany Road and surrounding streets, the schools and day care centres, would like to see the vehicle size limits enforced, without exceptions to vehicles who wish to use the petrol station.

    The residents were promised that there would be no further adjustments to the trading hours of the Bp station
    To suggest that people only get fours sleep before being bombarded with the noise from the trucks is ridiculous
    They should be subjected to at least the same curfews as Sydney airport if not more stringent as they are much closer to homes
    Please do not approve this DA

  5. Rachel Thornton commented

    The justification of the DA is to "service the shopping needs of the community".
    The community has unequivocally shown it does not need or want a 24/7 service station in the heart of our community bringing trucks, noise, pollution and traffic. The council's development plan is to improve the amenity of the community, approving this DA would be in direct opposition with this plan!

    The residents of Botany have found a way to express their objection to this DA via the petition below.
    We ask that Bayside council review the number of signatures and also the resident's statements of the current impact and expected impact to the local community if this DA was approved.

    Is7 days a week not enough . Now they want 24 hours a day 7 days a week for no ones benefit but their own. The Caltex 24 hour heavy vehicle station is purpose built . And a 24 hour shop n petrol station is definitely not wanted or needed . The operator has already stated he has no control over the trucks and anything outside his property as is the case now and he wants this to be expanded . There was supposed be no variations after the last approvals he sought . This ridiculous application needs to be rejected in its entirety .
