Your Waverley Park Experience

In reply to “anonymous” - Why do people “fear moving traffic” and their assertion that opposing such a proposal “does not make any logical sense”.
I and other residents in Waverley are opposed to turning the area into a cul-de-sac, increasing traffic flows past the local schools and creating exit and entry issues at peak times. These objections are entirely logical and based on reasonable concerns.
Road closures in Waverley will also result in greater flows of traffic to surrounding residential areas. If road closure proposals form part of any future local place plan then people in those areas should be informed and asked for their opinion. In those circumstances it would also be fair to ask for input from local schools and businesses.
We can improve Waverley without negatively impacting on the wider Shawlands community - of which we are all part.
