In Northmead NSW on “Construction & Operation of...” at 1 C Redbank Road Northmead NSW 2152:

Piers Wren commented

I believe this development will create traffic flow problems on a corner that already flows poorly and attracts many children due to the toddler playground immediately across the road.

Currently, cars heading towards Briens Rd from Glenn Ave along Redbank Rd need to cross onto the wrong side of the road at this point (intersection of Redbank/Park Rd) due to two white vans that are semi-permanently parked (perfectly legally) just outside the no-stopping zone here. The slight rise of the road as it turns a bend; combined with the Park Rd intersection makes this point in the road dangerous at most times.

During weekends and after school hours, traffic here is worse again because it is a popular parking area for people playing sport or families playing in Redbank park - which is a very popular park on nice days. During these periods, Redbank Rd and Park Rd are often reduced to single-lane by parked cars between approximately 50 Redbank Rd, around the corner and up to approximately 7 Park Rd.

Please consider the flow of traffic and increased parking requirements of this business. I would certainly appreciate it if a no parking / no standing zone could be implemented for a few houses either side of the intersection on both side of the road to keep the area clear and reduce the risk of tradies trucks blocking visibility whiled parked and visit the business.
