In Chatswood NSW on “Albert Avenue Railway...” at Albert Avenue, Chatswood,:

Robert Newman commented

I object to the signage on a number of issues:

The eastern sign is too close to the Garden of Remembrance which is an area of quiet reflection.

Both signs are directly above a high pedestrian and cycle crossing area and will distract drivers hence unsafe.

The light from the western sign is extremely close to residential units, especially the student accomodation (may be named, Igloo?)

It is needless light pollution for the sake of advertising, virtually thumbing its nose at the local council sustainability projects.

The statement of community benefit lists that these types of developments allow Transport NSW to improve access to stations but the Minister for Transport has written to the Artarmon Community refusing to improve access to the east side of Artarmon station (the next station down the rail corridor).

There is nothing in the list of community benefits that didn’t sound like it was grasping at straws by a group of “spin doctors”.
