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

Harry Brookes commented

I am a frequent visitor to my wife's sister who resides in 125 Merrivale Lane.
We come through St Ives and enter and leave Merrivale Lane by Pentecost Ave.
There is a left-hand bend in Pentecost Ave and traffic coming from Bobbin Head Rd end approach quickly on the down hill grade and extreme care is necessary.
I am concerned that, in view of the number of vehicles which will be using Merrivale Lane to access the proposed child care centre, there is an extreme risk of accident at this corner.
Furthermore, in the past 9 years we have been visiting the area, there are two boats parked in Merrivale Lane and I am sure that have not moved in all this time. The one on the left leaving Merrivale Lane is barely visible in the evening.
If any boats or vehicles are parked in Merrivale Lane and another car is approaching when we are in the section of the Lane between Pentecost Ave and the say 125, one of us must stop and pull over to the side. Another feature we have noticed is that there are no footpaths in the first section of the Lane and pedestrians and children are often on the road.
In my opinion, the increase in traffic which will be using this section of the Lane, at least twice per day, must result in problems and possibly accidents.
