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

Laurie D commented

AS an Austinmer resident for 45 years it seems to me inconceivable that a development that will add to the already horrific traffic congestion in the Thirroul area is actually being considered. The current problems with traffic on LHD have already led to numerous studies and investigation into the need for an additional route. This would seem far more critical now in the face of bushfire threats. There has been no action in this regard and now we have a proposal that will clearly exacerbate the problem. The proposal also adds another set of traffic lights on the corner of LHD and King St, which will make 4 sets of lights in a few hundred yards.
Then the proposal suggests a clearway along LHD from the Commonwealth Bank to Raymond Rd. after which the traffic will reenter 1 lane and become an enormous bottle neck at the bridge over the railway, not to mention hugely disadvantage any businesses on LHD.
There may be merit in upgrading the shops but on balance, seriously, this proposal has far more negatives than its worth. In my view, sheer madness!!!
