In Athelstone SA on “To erect a split level...” at 345 Gorge Road Athelstone SA 5076:

Franki Murphy commented

As an athelstone resident for the last 42 years I know the area inside out. I grew up at the location where the proposed development is considered. I have witnessed one death on gorge road and two children been hit by cars.
To say that children only leave child care centres protected by their parents is naive. Many children have no spacial awareness and are obvious to the dangers of traffic and big semi trailers.
The trucks only access to the quarry is through gorge road. That part of the road is narrow and with no in street parking and bike lanes there would be no where for the overflow cars.
The other issue is that there is no need for another childcare centre in the area. The ones we already have are no where near capacity.
I am not against progress in our city but I think this development is unnecessary abd not well thought out.
To think of the damage done to such an incredible landscape is undesirable.
We need to preserve as much land as possible for our future and the future of our children.
I employ the council to reconsider this proposal and move on to making our city the best in SA
