In Turramurra NSW on “Demolition of house at 117...” at 117 Merrivale Lane, Turramurra, NSW:

Michael Ellis commented

I think many people have already raised objections on basis that this is a development on a scale totally unsuitable for Merrivale Lane and also for the number of children, way above most in the area. I concur with their objections.
I further object as it will cause traffic problems in Merrivale Lane but also surrounding streets. I live in Buckra Street and already we seem to have become a peak hour by pass as particularly in the late afternoon motorists get off Pentecost Ave which often is blocked back from the Bobbin Head Rd lights to Merrivale lane/Rd intersection.
All the streets around us are not suitable for increased traffic volumes, Princes Street particularly at the shops is so bad that you must give way to any on coming vehicles. Adams and Murdock Streets with cars parked also are not suitable for a lot of traffic. Buckra Street where I live is OK with out parked cars but most of Buckra Street is not suitable for any increase traffic volumes. I think the garbage truck driver deserves an award for getting around this area.
This development will bring a volume of traffic not suitable for the area. The intersecrtion of Merrivale lane with Pentecost Ave is dangeroud now.
By its very planned size, 150 children, they must be coming from outside the area. Rezoning Merrivale Lane as commercial is very wrong by Council, it is setting a very bad presedent and we will have developers very excited about what next they can do to ruin leafy Ku Ring Gai.
A commercial development in Merrivale lane is very wrong.
