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

GARRY OWEN commented

Chatswood RSL sub Branch and Club submit the following.
It appears the lit signage on the Eastern side of the overbridge will have little visual impact upon the Garden of Remembrance.
This is because from the Garden there are two substantial trees blocking the view to the proposed sign.
The visual impact upon memorial and commemorate services consequently would, it seems, be minimal.
As a distraction from the concept that the Garden is a place of quite retreat and reflection, greater distraction is experienced on a regular basis
by the arrival and departure of trains at Chatswood Station.
Notwithstanding the above we believe that consideration should be given to either
• turning off the sign/s during commemorative day services but not exclusive to, the ANZAC Day Dawn Service & the Remembrance Day Service
• and, or the signs be used to acknowledge and remember those who served, and the fallen, on those occasions by showing relevant words for the majority of the day such as “Lest we Forget or We will remember them”.
