In Brunswick VIC on “Use of the land for trade...” at 145 Glenlyon Road, Brunswick VIC 3056:

Chris McDonald commented

I have to agree with Dawn's comments re the traffic in Glenlyon Road.

In addition, it's almost impossible to find a car park in Glenlyon Road now, let alone when hundreds of vehicles start parking nearby; which they will. You can see this at other Bunnings sites where some people prefer to park on the street rather than in the crowded car park.

Not to mention the traffic flow, or lack of! You can sit for ages trying to turn right into Glenlyon Road from Lygon St as it is now. I have seen frustrated drivers overtake someone waiting to turn right, to get around the corner into Glenlyon Road before the lights change. It is deadly as is; please don't allow it to become worse!

Peak hours aside, traffic travelling east backs up for miles along Glenlyon road, waiting for lights on Lygon St. How is this this 50 kph street going to cope with a huge increase in traffic? Simply put, it won't.

Why put a Bunnings store here anyway? There is already one only 1.3 kms away in Sydney Road! I can always get a car park there on Sydney Road, or they have a large car park out the back, and there are always plenty of spaces. This is unnecessary to say the least.
