Allen Chan commented

Hi I'm a resident in the local area and would like to highlight that there is a high pressure liquid petroleum pipeline owned by Caltex that runs through the property, with regards to this development, the 47 underground parking and the associated earthworks, the developer must fully comply to all safety requirements while working in the vicinity. A Caltex inspector will need to be present at all times during construction. Safety with working around the pipeline is of the utmost importance as this area is next to the local primary school and close proximity to local residents. Please ensure the developer adheres to the rules and regulations regarding the pipeline.

Another concern is the entry/exist of the underground carpark, as again there are kids going to and from school and the design of the driveway will need to be able to achieve adequate site distance to ensure the safety of small children walking to school. The driveway should be left in left out only (no right turns) to eliminate vehicle movements in an already congested area. This also applies during construction with heavy construction vehicles on site, a proper Traffic Management Plan needs to be designed and implemented. Note parking is already an issue along Belmore St east (especially under the James Ruse Drive overpass, sometimes vehicles park on both sides of the road and we can barely fit one car through let alone a bus), Council will need to address these issues in it's evaluation of the development, thanks.
