OTR Out of May Terrace

This petition had 522 supporters


It is obvious that the proposed development of a 24/7 On the Run (OTR) at the intersection of May Terrace and Kensington Road will increase congestion, collision risk and risks to the safety and wellbeing of residents commuters pedestrians families and children.

Two expert independent reports confirm this fact.

OTR estimate that 970 vehicles per day will move into and out of May Terrace, a residential street that is 8.5 metres wide. 

The May Terrace Kensington Road intersection is already overloaded with parked and moving vehicles at peak times. Buses, school buses, children families and older residents need to have safe access through this intersection.

Ambulances need unrestricted access to our local cardiology clinic. Motorists need to travel and park without risking collisions and without further congestion. People need to get into and out of their houses safely and to walk or ride to their destinations without distress. 

All this will be jeopardised if this proposal proceeds.

Expert independent analysis has already shown that the site itself is too small to safely accommodate what is proposed, there is inadequate on site parking and traffic circulation both on- and off site is highly problematic.

Burnside Council is unanimously and vehemently opposed to this development.    

There are already six existing OTR outlets within a 1.7km radius of the proposed site. Another 24/7 fuel and convenience facility is a mere 300m away.

There are many other possible uses for this site that will not do harm to our community or the 15,000 people who travel along Kensington Road every day.  

Minister, please, Just Say No.
