In Thirroul NSW on “Residential - demolition of...” at 28 George Street, Thirroul NSW 2515:

Janine Brown commented

It's irresponsible to continue to develop in this street when there is such a lack of infrastructure. There isn't even a footpath on George Street after the first two blocks. I pity school kids trying to navigate the verge - you can't, it's a mess so you have to walk on the road. Due to the huge number of cars already parked in the street you need to walk right out into the lane of traffic. Ideally all children this close to the school should be able to walk to school but it is quite dangerous. There is also only Kelton Lane cutting across to Lachlan Street (a shared access way) which is already congested a lot of the time and is directly in front of the proposed development. The congestion at the intersection of George and Philip Streets is also ongoing, with drivers so intent on getting through the intersection that they often aren't paying attention to the pedestrian crossing. People cut across the taxi/bus restricted zone to beat the queue - pretty dangerous as that's where the kids wait for their bus. Strenuously object to more development.
