Council Plans for the long awaited upgrade of Bunnerong Road which complement the Loop Upgrade. and Chifley Reserve Upgrade. These sections have been scanned from Randwick City Council Plan dated August 2010: (L-R) Military Road Intersection; Little Bay Roundabout; typical Bus Stop layout; Anzac-Bunnerong Intersection; La Perouse Bus Terminus. (Note scaling listed does not apply as sections reduced for this digital presentation)

The path for cyclists is not clear from the map.  Likewise for pedestrians.  Do they need to cross the road at the intersection of Goorawahl/Endeavour and Anzac Parade to continue.  Do they then have to cross back if they are going to one of the cafes.  Increasingly visitors are forced to park further away from the beaches and cafes and are seen walking Goorawahl Street to get to these venues.  There should be recognition of the fact that both Endeavour and Goorawahl are part of the tourist route and some attention given to traffic, cycling and pedestrian flows.  In the case of Goorawahl the footpath at the northern entry has been blocked off on the South Eastern side forcing pedestrians onto the road.

Vegetation is shown but we don’t know what. Will species be chosen which block views.  Will they be suitable native habitat.  When Frenchman’s Beach was upgraded Tuckeroos were planted, yet this species is known to attract Currawongs which in turn discourage smaller birds such as Wrens.

 Randwick Council’s byline is “sense of community”.  That should  include consulting with community – local residents and visitors – who use Bunnerong Road and the surrounding area. We only get one chance to get this right.

At Council’s Meeting of 19 October the matter of the Bunnerong Road Upgrade was closed to public scrutiny:

Closed Session

CS26/10    T19/10 Bunnerong Road Upgrade – Military Road to Anzac Parade, La Perouse

    I am anxious to know if the bus terminus will still have a shelter (necessary for the extreme weather conditions experienced here) and if kerbs will be available for boarding and alighting from the buses.

    I agree that such an important amenity for our area should be a matter for public comment. Closing the Bunnerong Road Upgrade to public scrutiny is simply unacceptable.

    To whom ever it may concern,

    I have grown up in this area all of my life which is only 41 years so far & all I can remember of this part of Bunnerong Road is for it to be of poor quality with any of the patch up work that has been performed in the way of repairs, I have even had on several occasions near head on driving accidents in my cars & I also have had a few nearly fatal cycling accidents involving motor cars & myself cycling from Matraville down to Laperouse so I am so glad that finally this dangerous part of Bunnerong road will be finally fixed as it is many many years overdue.

    I would also like too add that I hope the road part of this restoration part of Bunnerong Road will be of the high standard that has been paid attention to other parts of surrounding parts of this suburb & the surrounding suburbs that have had road upgrades, as just a patch up job is only going to have a limited amount of time before it degrades back into the poorly patched up & dangerous road that it has become.

    Kind Regards.

    Mark A.J. Cox
