    Thank you for the opportunity to comment. Residential frontages to Cowper Street are experiencing excessively high traffic volumes, in the vicinity of Daramalan College and the shopping centre. This has been the case for several years and is well documented in local traffic studies. The congestion along this route impacts on a series of intersections, making it much harder for residents of other streets to exit and generating long queues of traffic that block other peoples' driveways. Resolving this will not happen if the trend to triple unit density along this road continues, as it will significantly worsen the problem by adding more peak traffic. The residential amenity and safety of the suburb depend on consolidating sites in order to limit the number of driveway crossing points, combined with improving the pedestrian and cycle infrastructure to encourage more trips on foot, by bike, and using public transport. I object to this proposal on the basis that a proliferation of driveways servicing additional population diminishes the safety of the route and road network for other road and footpath users, many of whom are children.
