In Woonona NSW on “Commercial - demolition of...” at 74 Russell Street, Woonona NSW 2517:

Alex Dodds commented

I am a resident of Russell Street, Woonona, I object to this development, and agree with all previous comments made on this submission.

Along with all the other residents of Russell Street, I have to deal with an already very congested cul de sac, an already dangerous road junction with poor visibility at Robert Street, and weekly problems on rubbish collection day for residents and council colleagues driving the garbage trucks.

Adding an extra 60-70 cars per weekday would only make those problems and dangers worse. It’s only a matter of time before a serious traffic accident happens on this street, and the proposed development would increase those chances.

Being the father of a small child I totally understand the need for another childcare centre in the area, I waited 8 months to secure a spot for my son nearby. But, any additional centres need to be built in a far more accessible and safe location that doesn't so negatively affect the existing residents and community.
