In Rose Bay NSW on “Demolish existing shop,...” at 599 Old South Head Road Rose Bay NSW 2029:

Exclusive East Tours commented

How can one council approve so many concurrent developments? There are not enough main roads on this narrow piece of land as it is,between the stretch from the western harbour foreshore to the Pacific Ocean on the Eastern side.
New South Head Rd being closest to the harbour foreshore carries all traffic,(including schoool and STA buses) from WATSONS bay and VAUCLUSE through to Rose bay including traffic to the rose bay Ferry station and passing about 4 private schools en route .
Old S.Head Rd carries the balance as does Military Rd. Trucks demolishing buildings and then construction vehicles ,obscure visibility and cause delays whilst traffic is stopped in both directions with lollipop staff.

The Water pressure is presently challenged, the sewerage is compromised (and Nbn complicates the matter). Just over greedy developers! No extra pedestrian refuge or zebra crossings have been implemented to cross these now far busier roads in a safe manner and streams of traffic make it impossible to do so.
Has anyone tried to turn RT into OSH rd lately from Blake street ? A new Construction site on the corner of Blake and old south head rd makes this dangerous and an accident waiting to happen.
Turning into Blake street is now harder than before ,as one is likely to have to wait to turn safely in and then hope not to be rear ended by the next driver turning into Blake from O.S.H rd.
When will it be enough, council?
This can’t possibly be in the best interests of the environment either.
