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

Mary Janet Stone commented

I have been a resident in the northern suburbs of Wollongong for over 20 years and shopped in Thirroul all of that time. Thirroul is a beautiful village and a great tourist attraction in which visitors can enjoy the village atmosphere and high street shopping. This new development will not only change the ambience of the village but more importantly will effect the safety of the locals and tourists. The traffic has become so heavy over the last few years especially on holidays and weekends. It is bumper to bumper and as there is only one road in and out it is so difficult for emergency vehicles to navigate up and down the coast. I think the idea of an additional 82 apartments and the traffic from them will just make the current traffic problems even worse. There are so many reasons not to increase the village population but safety is a real concern. The plaza definitely needs to be improved but building appartments there is in my opinion not the right way to do it. I lived at Wombarra for many years and know from personal experience that waiting for an ambulance can be a matter of life and death, this plan will only impact on this traffic problem even more.
