Your Waverley Park Experience
Posted by anonymous on Feb 22, 2021
I live on Ravenswood Drive and have small kids. Surprise surprise, the through traffic can sometimes be a nightmare and a concern for their welfare. Any useful measure to help limit the speed which vehicles pass by our front door, I am very interested in.
Unfortunately, I am not in favour of the Durward loop proposal as cutting off access to those streets will only result in an increase of traffic in the areas left accessible to traffic, such as the lower end of Ravenswood Drive. Even if it were two different streets, it would likely unfairly affect those living in the immediate vicinity of the closures.
I feel a more fair and workable approach is a combination of vertical and horizontal measures such as road narrowing and speed bumps is the best way forward. This feels a fair solution and is a uniform approach that won't inconvenience any one single household more than another.
