Submission for: Trinity Grammar School Redevelopment.
ASHFIELD, New South Wales
The traffic congestion related to increasing the number of students and therefore pickups and drop offs would be unacceptable in the neighbouring streets not to mention dangerous for children and residents.
No building in this area are currently above 4 stories and it is a quiet a residential zone apart from 8-9 am
and 230-400 pm weekdays and all day Saturday when school traffic, buses and parking makes travel very difficult.
Driving children to school should be discouraged for health and safety and environmental reasons.
Please see the attached photos of Victoria St on a school morning during the peak hour mentioned above.
Increasing the student numbers by 545 will only inconvenience local residents further and contribute to the gridlock and dangerous conditions on the road adjacent to the school at busy times.
