In Botany NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 1581 Botany Road, Botany NSW 2019:

Rolfe Kolbe commented

I am concerned about this proposal on a number of fronts:
1. Traffic increases: Great improvements were made with the Hale St extension to stop Botany Road being a rat race of trucks and vehicles 24hours a day. Unfortunately we already have an increasing number of vehicles longer that 12m ignoring the the restriction to use the BP and there is no doubt this would increase with a 24 hour Macdonald's. Returning 24 hour traffic to Botany Road is a major concern.
2. Rubbish: Botany Subway is small comparatively but the rubbish that gets left around the area of the store is a telltale sign of what a Large waste heavy restaurant would do to the area.
3. Reversing of Botany improvements: The suburb has been transformed to be a family friendly suburb. I feel the noise and activity increases that a Macdonald's restaurant would bring would detract massively from this transformation. A 24 hour site would most certainly be a backwards step for Botany.
4. Existing Macdonald's: There are already numerous Macdonald's within a few kilometres of Botany.
I would be happy to build on these points in needed.
