This $98 million initiative will have quite an impact on a number of people and those directly affected are asking questions like:
What is the logic of changing the intersection to 3 lanes north and southbound? What will happen when the traffic has to merge back to 2 lanes after the intersection?….a bottleneck? How does this improve traffic flow? What about safety? What will it be like when there are trucks merging back into 2 lane traffic? What about our street-scapes and the removal of all the trees? Where is DPTI’s adequate ‘consultation’ process with those people whose properties are targeted for acquisition as well as the wider community?
WHAT DO YOU THINK???
Stay informed about what is happening locally by attending one of these (late notice) DPTI community information sessions and reading “Backlash over $98m intersection upgrade” (The Advertiser February 4, page 7).
