(Photos L-R:  At around 4pm yesterday – Frenchmans Bay, Bus Terminus Turning Loop congested with illegally parked cars; bus stuck on The Loop at the Timbery  Park boomgate).

There were traffic problems in La Perouse, Phillip Bay and Little Bay as thousands of visitors streamed into the area to the beaches and cafes.  In the 2007 Environmental Assessment for the Botany Bay Cable http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=132 the authors noted under section  7.1.1. (page 68)   that “overall, the highest traffic volumes in the Project area are experienced along Anzac Parade on weekends, where daily traffic volumes can approach 7,400 per average weekend day or 834 vehicles per hour.”  There has been no traffic count since this study but anecdotal evidence suggests that numbers have increased.

Because the buses couldn’t use the bus turning circle they were forced to circle the Loop. Because cars were illegally parked at Timbery Park one of the buses got stuck.  There were no Council compliance officers around to book cars.  Police resources were stretched.  After more than hour police did arrive and there were more than 14 officers in the area booking cars for illegal parking.  This still did not solve the problem for the buses as illegally parked cars blocked  bus access – they needed to be towed away.

    Hi Lynda !
    I watched all of this happening and we agree that Tow Away signs should be used urgently.
    On Saturday I was returning home via the southern end of Goorawahl Ave , however I had to back my car towards Anzac Parade to allow many other cars approaching from the northern end to pass through – we have asked for this part of the street to be free of parking to prevent some disaster .

    My question is – “When will someone actually make a decision to address these problems ?”

    I returned to the Eastern Suburbs one year ago, after a 20 year absence and cannot believe that the Botany Bay Port Authority has allowed huge trucks to take over the streets in our area and pollutes the environment with 24 hour noise; that I still smell organic odours from the Treatment Works at Malabar; that the beaches of Malabar, Yarra Bay, and Frechman’s Bay are still polluted to a degree of danger to the public; that we have lost our local Hospital Emergency Department and the priceless piece of land on which it stood; that this country still has no incinerator built to deal with our own toxic wastes most of which were generated in this area; that this very special piece of history at La Perouse is allowed to be desecrated by night by irresponsible car and motorbike riders from other parts of the city, and by day by careless visitors; that jet planes are allowed to fly over the residential part of La Perouse (6am to 11pm) when they were supposed to fly over the entrance to Botany Bay. The list could go on !!

    “Who has taken any interest in this part of Sydney in the past 20 years ?”
    .

    No different yesterday. The bus terminus was packed with cars all illegally parked and no council rangers to be seen. The police have better things to do it should be council doing the bookings. We pay enough rate. Rain today so not a problem but let’s see what happens next sunday at the greek festival.

    Hi Linda,

    One day last week I counted 171 cars parked on the left side of the road between the bus depot and Canara Avenue.

    At least at the moment on busy days when visitors park on the grass beside the road we don’t have to have permanent concrete parking bays just to cope with these busy weekends. I prefer parking on grass so that we have inoffensive grass areas for the rest of the year.

    I think we need more signs clearly stating where it is illegal to park (ie where it is dangerous) and we need to have parking officers down here each summer weekend booking those people doing the wrong thing. If parking officers are clearly visible then you find that when people have to pay fines they very quickly get the message about adhering to the signs.

    I am concerned that if the Energy Australia site is made into a park and does not return to an unofficial grassed parking area for busy days then we are going to have even more parking problems if they instigate a ‘no parking area’ on the left side of the road between the loop and Canara. I sometimes wonder if the council has secret plans to put in a carpark somewhere else at La Perouse to cope with the visitors?? I hope not as it would be very short sighted to make the Energy Australia area into a park then build an official car park elsewhere.
