    Good morning,
    We have just noticed the application for the above development.

    While we understand that development is absolutely necessary to the ever increasing population,you must,must, from a safety aspect, prior to proceeding with the application, look into the increased traffic flow and the effects that will be placed on Callaghan Rd.

    At this time Callaghan road has been patched several times and is constantly breaking apart at the edges.I have personally destroyed three vehicle wheels from impacts to severe road potholes.

    When a vehicle passes an approaching vehicle on Callaghan Rd, let alone a heavy vehicle, school children and other pedestrians are put in extreme danger, as there is no safe sealed sidewalk.

    With the flow on effect from the increased proposal of 163 units, from either a single car family or possible two car family, an enhanced amount of traffic will occur.

    Previous failings to upgrade road infrastructure show it is only a matter of time before somebody is injured.
    Thank you for taking the time to look into our concern.

    Callaghan road can’t carry the traffic even at present. The junction with old Gympie road is so bad that sometimes I have to turn around and go back to narangba road and then come down McPhail road just to be able to get to work. This happens quite often when the Bruce highway is too busy.
    Callaghan road needs to be upgraded to 2 lanes each way before any more high density housing is built.
    With the proposed school also being built next year it will be impossible to move on the road

    Callaghan Rd is not capable of handling any increase in constant traffic, it is not safe or suitable for the increase that has already happened with increased volume from the Alkina & Amity estates.
    The road itself is in terrible condition due the council only filling potholes sporadically when a total reseal is necessary. The road is a safety hazard. Not to mention the increase in traffic speeding/rat running down Callaghan Rd.
    There are no concrete footpaths for residents to safely walk on and the sidings are all rutted.
    Even at 5.30am we cannot walk safely down Callaghan Rd. Kids can't even ride their bikes as it is unsuitable and the volume and speed of traffic is dangerous.
    What upgrades are going to be made to manage the water flow when it floods? Any development is going impact the natural water run off.
    Callaghan Rd gets cut off at both ends, will there be improvements to stormwater drainage?
    Will the council ensure that the creek that runs along Callaghan Rd is sufficiently and regularly cleaned, mown and maintained to lessen the impact from weeds, rubbish, and silt clogging up the waterway?
