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

P. Byrne commented

If you live in Thirroul you will be acutely aware that a rapid rise in density (owing largely to Macauley's estate and an exponential increase in the subdivision of blocks) has led to hazardous traffic conditions. There is only one street in and one street out of Thirroul. In the event that the community needed to be evacuated (for example if there were fires in the escarpment, which is not unprecedented), emergency services would be facing a major challenge. Please consider upgrading locals rods and providing additional exit points before approving this and other large developments. Thirroul is major disaster waiting to happen. If something happens, and there is an inquiry, I wouldn't want to have been involved in the approval of so many developments without putting the safety of the community first. Someone would have to be held accountable!
