Help stop the RMS from taking away our parking on Old South Head Rd.

RMS NSW intend extending the times of the clearway on Old South Head rd between Flood St and Bellevue Rd.

The residents, property owners, business owners and customers of local business of the surrounding area that will be affected by extended clearway times on Old South Head rd call on the RMS to halt all work on this project for at least 60 days in order to engage in proper community consultation to allow the impact to resident to be properly and fairly assessed. 

The local area will be affected by:

  • Residents of the local area wont have any place for their visitors to park, that means no Saturday or Sunday afternoon visits or weekday day time visits
  • No place to stop to drop off guests or visitors visiting local residents
  • No parking for deliveries or tradesmen
  • No parking for local business customers, no stopping to pick up a coffee or a bite to eat
  • Increased congestion in local streets as people try to find parking in the area
  • Continuing the trend of RMS taking away parking and usable amenity from the local area
  • The RMS will remove approx 80 meters of valuable parking and replace it with no extra parking in the area
  • This strip of rd does not impact traffic flows in the proposed extended hours however this change will greatly affect the local community

We request that the RMS please share with the community any comprehensive research or data that is available that can show that the strip of road in question is in fact a cause of bottle neck or traffic and that extended clearway times are necessary to alleviate any such traffic. We don't feel there is any traffic flow concern in the extended hours that are proposed and so we are asking to see what data the RMS has used to earmark this strip of rd for extended clearways as it will negatively impact the local residents, business owners and local community.

The RMS has not conducted any effective traffic survey or analysis nor has it sought any community consultation when making this decision. It has not considered the impact the decision will have on local business owners and their customers, property owners or residents in the affected area
