Relocation of Kirrawee footbridge

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Dear resident,
I am writing to you about the proposed new footbridge bridge that is about to go across from the corner of Bath Road to the Prince Hotel.

We feel that the placing of this bridge is not in the best interest of the local community and is of no benefit to the residents. The location would be better suited closer to the south village/ railway precinct. This would allow the dense populated areas to access the child care centre, McDonald’s and would be closer to the prince hotel entry.

We feel that the major disadvantages to the local residence will be:

A financial waste. It is illogical to locate the bridge 500m from the bulk of pedestrian traffic. It should be located closer to the high density areas of the Kirrawee station/ south village development. We should expect more from a multi million dollar project.

The impact on parking in this area as Prince Hotel patrons will start parking on Bath Road/Durbar Avenue to have easy access to the pub.

Direct access for patrons to the Prince Hotel will result in these patrons leaving the pub and walking directly into the residential/ school area.

Another concern from us is that people drinking from the pub need to cross bath road to reach the Brick Pit/ station and an inebriated person will not be seen crossing the road at night. It is already difficult to cross there let alone without a large structure blocking the line of sight to the highway

On Monday 16 July at 12.00 noon, the local MP Craig Kelly will be coming to our clinic with the Sydney Morning Herald to discuss the bridge and our concerns; we welcome you to join us on the day to speak with him. If you feel that you would like to air your concerns but are unable to join us on Monday please email Craig Kelly’s office on: craig.kelly.mp@aph.gov.au
Or contact Frank Zumbo his collegue on: 0417 213 768
Thank you for your support
