Additional Exit Crestwood Drive to Ocean Drive
We, the petitioners, are either residents of the Crestwood Estate or regular visitors, to the Estate. There is currently one entry/exit to the Crestwood Estate.
As a resident or visitor, with the continued expansion within the estate, we have experienced significant delays in exiting the estate, particularly during work weeks (outside of School Holidays)
This is particularly noticeable at the intersection of upper Crestwood Drive and lower Crestwood Drive which becomes a congested intersection during these periods, and relies on the courtesy of drivers with right of way to allow egress to other drivers.
We are concerned that, along with the continued expansion of the estate with a significant number of dwellings yet to be built, that this will add loaded stress on the single entry/ exit point from the estate.
We note, that with the intended duplication of Ocean Drive, council intend to construct an egress to Ocean Drive directly opposite Yaluma Drive, that will be closed to regular vehicular traffic unless in the event of an emergency. We can see no reason why this planned access should not be a permanent access. This particular route in the past allowed an alternative exit point from the estate.
We petition council, prior to the finalisation of the planned duplicate of Ocean Drive to:;
Make the proposed emergency exit a permanent entry/exit to the estate for use by regular vehicular traffic.
