The draft Master Plan aims to improve access for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. Do you think the design will achieve improved access?

    I don't see how access can be improved when the entry and exit routes have not changed at all; considering also that the centre lane access will now be removed. Throughput of traffic may not increase due to extra zebra crossings, although wider car spaces may get vehicles in and out more quickly.

    NO!!! This plan redices the amount of cars able to access the shopping precinct. It is ill thought out and a waste of our rates money. Council should be creating underground carparking, with tunnel access to both sides of the Great Western Highway, both ingress and exit, remving the traffic snalrs and hazards, then, the entire area above ground could be opened up for park area, with picnic tables.

    I like the overall plan with the open space and landscaping a big improvement on what is there at the moment, And should improve safety aspects with the traffic slowed by the design of the plan.

    Well, when you are starting off with a 'dog's breakfast', any improvement is a good thing. The trick is to make the 'new' work better than the 'old'. The realignment of the pedestrian ramp between the two levels is a good thing. I particularly like the proposed pedestrian link at the southern end of the site. It will certainly remove the current problem of people climbing over the concrete kerb where the metal railing has been removed. Widening the car spaces will also make it easier to get in and out of your car and make it easier for drivers to get into and out of car spaces. The other good thing is the desire to make the link with Hapenny lane more prominent and more pedestrian friendly.
