Camden Council have written to residents of Manooka Valley (Currans Hill) to advise that following road works on Turner Road the current "bus route" will be closed to traffic with a permanent gate added. The notice states the gate will be in place to allow access to emergency vehicles only. However no consideration has been given to the high risk of fire and the ability for residents to flee via this route if required.
The current development proposal will see the population of Manooka Valley grow significantly and the access points into and our of Currans Hill which are already strained will be further congested.
Lack of access to zoned schools (including Gledswood Hills) and alternate grocery store locations have also not been considered.
This petition is intended to highlight the need seen from our local community to provide open access along Turner Road into and out of Manooka Valley.
