In Thirroul NSW on “Commercial - demolition of...” at 282-298 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul NSW 2515:

Shaun Prince commented

THE issue is access and traffic movement; and from Bulli north onward. With the failure to deliver the long planned alternative access (through the "Cookson's" site) to Thirroul being the major bottleneck - the current single access two lane rail bridge is 20 years past its used-by-date!

Wollongong Council and the RMS have simply not given the resolution of northern suburbs access and traffic movement the priority it has long deserved!

While the plaza project is a significant single development, it is relatively minor in the context of the overall growth in the density of housing in the northern suburbs, which has been steadily driven by the year-on-year increase of the multitude of smaller scale and "mum and dad developments" - secondary dwellings, dual occupancy's and the like.

The evolution of residential development in the northern suburbs, like everywhere else, will continue; it needs to, if housing supply is to just keep up with demand.

What clearly is isn't happening, is the critically required infrastructure planning and investment by the Council and the RMS - and that is where the venting here should be properly aimed, if change is to be achieved!
